Periodontal disease is a widespread and serious oral health issue, one that impacts half of adults, with almost 10% experiencing the severe stages. These stages could weaken bone structure and cause tooth loss. Our periodontal practice maintains offices in Garden Grove and Diamond Bar, CA can help protect your smile with osseous surgery.

The Impact of Periodontal Disease

When you develop gum disease, the issue will grow in severity over time and could eventually lead to periodontitis, the advanced stage of the disease. At this point, the bacteria deposits beneath the gums can destroy the connective tissues between your teeth and gums, and even wear down bone structure too. Your jaw is weakened and you risk the loss of your natural teeth. In many cases, we can offer scaling and root planing to remove harmful buildup from the teeth and roots, so we can manage the disease and prevent tooth loss. But sometimes you may have a severe case that needs more than a scaling and root planing to save your jawbone and prevent tooth loss. You may also benefit from osseous surgery.

When You Need Surgery

If you begin to notice soreness and redness your gums, bleeding when you brush or floss, or receding tissues, then you need to reach out to our team. These are warning signs of periodontal disease, and signs that you need care to avoid the loss of your natural teeth and the weakening of your smile. While gum disease cannot be cured, treatment can be employed to bring it into a manageable state, so moving forward simple cleanings every three to four months and a good oral hygiene routine at home can safeguard your smile and keep it whole.

Osseous Surgery

When you have an advanced stage of the disease, we could offer this surgery to prevent further loss of bone structure. Also known as flap surgery, the procedure involves creating a flap of your periodontal tissues around the impacted area, so we can lift it and remove deposits of harmful bacteria. We can also remove damaged bone structure and reshape the structure too. We will employ local anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the treatment, and the recovery usually takes just a few days. We will provide detailed aftercare instructions following the procedure.
