Periodontal Surgery (Ossesous Surgery )
If you have periodontal disease, it is important to utilize methods to stop the progression of the disease and its effects. Fortunately, ossesous surgery is able to get rid of diseased bone and gum tissue so that you're left with a healthier mouth. We are able to perform ossesous surgery right in the office and send you home the same day with informative aftercare instructions.
What is Ossesous Surgery?
Ossesous surgery involves the removal of unhealthy or infected gum tissue and bone that has been affected by periodontal disease. The procedure works to cut away at infected tissue and reshape the bone to remove signs of the disease. After the procedure is done, sutures are placed to keep the new gum tissue in place next to the tooth in order to heal.
I cannot recommend Dr. Kramer and her team at West Cobb Periodontics enough! From the friendly professionalism of the front office and her assistants, to the procedure itself - Dr. Kramer was able to walk me through all of my options and help me with a quick, pain-free wisdom tooth extraction without any complications.
Who is a Good Candidate for Ossesous Surgery?
Before having ossesous surgery performed, an exam and series of x-rays will be taken to determine if you are a viable candidate for the procedure. If you are a healthy adult and will benefit greatly from the procedure, it will probably be recommended that you have it done. Some of the best candidates for ossesous surgery include:
- Patients with advanced periodontal disease
- Patients who are looking to get rid of diseased and infected gum tissue and bone
- Patients who are healthy enough to have the surgery performed
