Osseous Surgery (Pocket Depth Reduction)

Osseous Surgery, also known as Pocket Depth Reduction, is a surgical procedure used to smooth and reshape affected bone under the gum tissue. This procedure is performed when a pocket around a tooth (or teeth) has not responded to other treatments. It creates a shallow pocket making it difficult for bacteria to survive and damage bone, resulting in bone loss and ultimately, tooth loss.

Goals of this Procedure:

  • Prevention of Bone Loss
  • Reduction of the Spread of Bacteria
  • Creation of a More Beautiful Smile
  • Facilitation of At Home Hygiene Care
