Why is Osseous Surgery Necessary?

Periodontal disease is an oral infection and damages the structures supporting the teeth—the periodontal ligament, gums, and the alveolar bone tissue. When there is an advanced periodontal infection, to the point of advanced to moderate bone deterioration, you are at high risk of losing your teeth. Periodontal disease also becomes a threat for systemic health conditions with which it is linked due to harmful oral bacteria making their way into other areas of the body. To save your teeth and protect your overall health from the dangerous effects of periodontal disease, Dr. Jay Afek offers osseous surgery in San Diego, CA.

Osseous Surgery Can Save Your Teeth

Osseous surgery is also known as flap surgery. It’s a procedure usually performed to deal with advanced periodontitis. Dr. Akef may prescribe osseous surgery as a treatment option after other gum disease treatment methods have not worked in stopping the progress of the disease process, or the condition is at an advanced stage. The surgical procedure’s objective is to relieve the mouth of active periodontal infection and preserve the remaining bone structure and the teeth that it supports. Saving your teeth is our primary goal so that you can maintain a healthy mouth and body.

The Benefits of Flap Surgery

Osseous surgery is usually carried out in quadrants, or sections of the mouth. First, Dr. Akef anesthetizes the site requiring treatment for highest comfort, and retracts the gum tissue over the roots and bone, and can access the deepest areas of infection. The tooth roots are cleaned of tartar and plaque deposits, and the rough surface areas of the bone created by the bacteria are smoothed. Dr. Akef then expertly trims the infected gum tissue and sutures the site so that healing can begin.
