Osseous Surgery Rochester NY

A smiling young manOsseous surgery, sometimes referred to as pocket reduction surgery, refers to a number of different surgeries aimed at gaining access to the tooth roots to remove tartar and disease-causing bacteria.

Goals of Osseous Surgery

Osseous surgery is used to reshape bone deformities and reduce pockets . It is commonly needed to treat more advanced periodontal disease. The specific goals of this surgery include

•  Reducing Bacterial Spread:
Bacteria from the mouth can spread throughout the body and cause or perpetuate life-threatening conditions such as heart disease and respiratory disease. Removing deep plaque and calculus can help reduce the risk of bacteria spreading to other areas of the body.
•  Preventing Bone Loss:
The body’s inflammatory response prompted by periodontal bacteria can lead to bone loss in the jaw region, and cause teeth to fall out. Osseous surgery seeks to stop periodontal disease before it gets to this level.
•  Facilitating Home Care:
As the gum pockets deepen, it can become nearly impossible to brush and floss adequately. Osseous surgery reduces pocket depths, making it easier to brush and floss effectively, and thereby prevent further periodontal disease.
