One of the problems that happens when periodontal disease takes hold is that the bacteria that cause inflammation and infection start to breed and eat away at the surrounding bone. During osseous surgery, we will carefully numb the and pull back the gums to expose the root and bone surfaces. We can then clean the root and smooth out the rough spots on the bone. This reduces places for bacteria to hide and grow. After this thorough process, the gums are reattached to protect the area. For many patients, having osseous surgery is the start to finally getting control over their gum disease.
