What is Osseous Surgery?

Osseous surgery, also known as flap surgery or pocket reduction surgery, is a dental procedure designed to address severe gum disease (periodontitis) that has led to significant damage to the surrounding bone and gum tissues. The primary goal of this surgery is to remove the infection, reduce pocket depths, and restore the damaged structures, ensuring a stable and healthy environment for your teeth.

At Dublin Corners Dental, we believe that a strong foundation is the key to a healthy, beautiful smile. That’s why we offer osseous surgery, a specialized dental procedure aimed at treating advanced gum disease and revitalizing the supporting structures of your teeth. With our expert team and state-of-the-art techniques, we can help you regain your oral health and confidence.

When is Osseous Surgery Needed?

Osseous surgery becomes necessary when gum disease progresses to an advanced stage, causing the following issues:

  1. Deep Periodontal Pockets: Advanced gum disease creates pockets between the gums and teeth, which trap bacteria and lead to further infection and bone loss.
  2. Bone Loss: Severe gum disease can cause the supporting bone to deteriorate, compromising the stability of your teeth.
  3. Gum Recession: As gum disease advances, the gums may recede, exposing the tooth roots and making them susceptible to decay and sensitivity.
  4. Tooth Mobility: In advanced cases, gum disease can result in tooth mobility and eventual tooth loss if left untreated.

The Osseous Surgery Process:

At Dublin Corners Dental, our experienced dental team ensures a comfortable and effective osseous surgery experience:

  1. Comprehensive Examination: During your initial consultation, we will thoroughly assess your oral health, including X-rays and periodontal charting, to determine the extent of gum disease and bone loss.
  2. Local Anesthesia: Before the surgery begins, we will administer local anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure.
  3. Flap Creation: Our skilled periodontist will carefully create small incisions in the gum tissue to access and clean the diseased root surfaces and pockets.
  4. Bone and Tissue Restoration: The infected tissues are removed, and the damaged bone is reshaped to eliminate irregularities and promote healing.
  5. Sutures: Once the root surfaces are cleaned, the gums are repositioned and sutured back in place, ensuring proper healing and attachment.

Benefits of Osseous Surgery:

  • Halt Gum Disease Progression: Osseous surgery effectively stops the advancement of gum disease, preventing further damage to your teeth and supporting structures.
  • Bone Regeneration: The procedure stimulates bone regeneration, promoting the growth of healthy bone tissue and supporting tooth stability.
  • Improved Oral Health: By eliminating infection and reducing pocket depths, osseous surgery creates a healthier oral environment.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Osseous surgery can address gum recession, improving the appearance of your smile.
