Gum disease can cause an increase in the size of these pockets leading to a buildup of bacteria that appear as a sticky and colorless plaque. The Osseous surgery is a procedure that gets rid of bacteria living in these pockets in which a surgeon cuts back your gums, removes the bacteria, and repairs damaged bone.
If you’re experiencing sensitivity, pain, swelling, or any other discomfort due to a gum related disease, Gingivectomy Surgery can help alleviate this pain and your primary dentist may recommend this procedure to prevent further gum damage and for easier cleaning.
A ridge augmentation can help shape and contour your gum and jawline to what it was before any teeth were removed or any alveoli were damaged. After a successful ridge augmentation, you will have enough healthy bone to support future dental implants.
A bone graft is used to recreate bone and soft supporting tissues lost due to trauma or periodontal disease. If you have periodontal disease, you may be losing bony support around your teeth, and in order to avoid extractions, your periodontist may recommend regenerating the lost bone with a grafting procedure.
LANAP is a minimally invasive periodontal procedure that utilizes a pulsing laser which is absorbed by infected and inflamed tissue. The diseased tissue and bacteria which have a darker pigment than healthy tissue are “zapped” away, leaving behind only healthy gum tissue.
