Osseous surgery is used to reduce deep pockets between gums and teeth, and to help stop the progression of periodontal disease. Osseous surgery may be needed only in a small section of the mouth or in several areas of the mouth. Several areas can be operated on at the same time to reduce the need for additional dental visits.
Osseous surgery in Princeton is one of the most effective periodontal surgical procedures. It actually is performed to gain access to the diseased root and bone area. During the surgery infection is removed, the pocketing is reduced, and the gums are made ready to regain their good health. The gum and jawbone can be reshaped so that the gum can close tighter around the tooth. This will make it easier to remove plaque during dental cleanings. The osseous surgery is performed using local anesthesia. This is considered to be a very good way to proceed with treatment for serious gum disease if there is not yet the need for bone grafting. It is important that our patient becomes committed to excellent oral hygiene, including regular professional dental cleanings, if the gum disease is to be permanently kept at bay.
