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
