Bone grafting is a minor dental surgery that can be performed in our dental office. It is the process of adding more support to the jawbones to create a stronger base for artificial teeth and dental implants.
Periodontists use crown lengthening to reduce the amount of gum tissue that overlays the teeth. For people with gum disease, crown lengthening can reduce the “pocket” between the teeth and gum where bacteria can grow.
Osseous surgery is another term for pocket reduction. Gum disease can cause a pocket to form in between the tooth and gum where bacteria grow. Osseous surgery cleans the pockets and reduces their size to prevent the spread of gum disease.
Multiple kinds of surgical interventions may be necessary to treat periodontal disease. Our specialized dentist will create a personalized treatment plan for you that may include antibiotic therapy as well as minor surgeries.
