Effective Gum Disease Treatment Restores Your Oral Health
When you are exploring gum disease treatment options, you may be wondering about your options. Osseous surgery is a surgical technique that involves cutting the gum tissue to gain access to areas below the gumline, in order to clear infection and make it difficult for bacteria to harbor. It is a time-tested solution that is proven to promote a healthier environment. Our doctors are highly trained to treat all stages of gum disease and may recommend osseous surgery as part of your treatment plan.
Benefits of Osseous Surgery
It’s important to undergo gum disease treatment with a periodontist because these dental professionals specialize in gum health issues and related problems. If you have a family history of gum disease or have been recently diagnosed, you may benefit from osseous surgery for the following reasons:
- Removes infected gum tissue permanently
- Helps clear the infection in the mouth
- Helps preserve natural teeth
- Reduces risk of tooth loss
- Improves bad breath
After Osseous Surgery
After you undergo this procedure, you need to be even more diligent with your gum care routine and make sure you are brushing and flossing daily after the gums have healed. Here are three steps that we do after surgery that will help guide you in your healing process.
We will provide you with post-op instructions so your gums can heal and you are not putting yourself at risk for an infection.
We will schedule a series of periodontal maintenance visits that involve a deeper cleaning than regular cleanings to maintain results.
We will monitor you closely throughout the year to ensure the gums are healing properly and there is no sign of an infection.
