If periodontal treatments haven’t reduced the size of the periodontal pockets in your gums, then come to Montgomery County Periodontal Associates for osseous surgery. Our periodontist will reshape your bone tissue in order to help your gums attach more easily to it. Contact Dr. Miles Mason today if you want to learn more about osseous surgery in Conroe, Texas.
If you suffer from the most severe stage of gum disease (periodontitis), then you may have deep periodontal pockets in your gum tissue as well as bone loss and defects. We offer several services that help to heal your mouth, but if all other procedures do not reduce the size of periodontal pockets, then we may suggest osseous surgery. Through this treatment, we eliminate gum pockets and recontour uneven bone tissue.
After numbing the areas we will treat, we expose them for surgery by making incisions in the gums. We will clean the tooth roots and reshape the jaw bone tissue there. We do this by removing bone in some places and restoring it in others with grafts. After suturing the gums back in their place, we will apply a periodontal dressing over the area. Feel free to contact us if you want to learn more about osseous surgery.
