Osseous Surgery

Osseous Surgery: Conventional & Laser in Valencia, CA

What Is Osseous Surgery?

Osseous surgery treats advanced gum disease (periodontitis). You may also see it referred to as “pocket reduction surgery.” It involves accessing teeth roots and removing plaque from them. Additionally, it may include removing diseased gum tissue, correcting gum position, and reshaping and/or regenerating the bone around teeth. 

Our periodontists at Valencia Periodontics have a wealth of experience performing osseous surgery. They have used it to restore patients’ oral health, giving them smiles they could be proud of. In most cases, our team uses laser technologies to deliver better results. No cutting. No stitches. Faster healing times. This is what you can expect if you turn to us for osseous surgery in Valencia.

Patient Benefits of Osseous Surgery

Osseus surgery offers various benefits, such as:

  • Restored gum health: Osseous surgery eliminates harmful bacteria and removes infected tissue, promoting healthy gum regeneration.   
  • Reduced pocket depth: Pockets are small spaces between gums and teeth where damaging plaque and bacteria accumulate. By reducing pocket depth, osseous surgery lessens the likelihood of issues and strengthens gums and teeth. 
  • Preventing tooth loss: Severe gum disease weakens the structures that support teeth. Osseous surgery can stabilize these structures and reduce the chances of tooth loss. 
  • Improving the look of smiles: Gum disease often causes gum recession, but osseous surgery treats this problem by restoring gum lines. 
  • Preventing other health issues: Gum disease is associated with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory infections, and other conditions. Treating gum disease through osseous surgery can lower the risks of these health complications. 
  • Enhanced oral hygiene: Removing diseased tissue and reshaping bone makes it easier to maintain proper oral hygiene. Osseous surgery can get your smile back on track.

Laser Vs. Conventional Options

During conventional osseous surgery, surgeons make incisions in the gums to get to the roots of teeth. While this method has proven to effectively treat gum disease, it is invasive, requires local anesthesia and other sedation medications, and comes with a longer recovery period. On the other hand, laser osseous surgery is less invasive, can be performed with little to no anesthetics, and offers results with shorter recovery times. 

Our doctors perform the FDA-approved LANAP protocol treatment. It uses laser technology to selectively target and eliminate bacteria surrounding teeth. The laser stimulates healthy bone and gum tissue growth. Additionally, it cauterizes blood vessels, minimizing bleeding during the procedure. As a result, laser-assisted treatment may be more comfortable.

How Is Osseous Surgery Different from Scaling & Root Planing?

While the aims of osseous surgery and scaling and root planing are similar, the processes and when each procedure is necessary differ. Osseous surgery is reserved for more advanced gum disease. Scaling and root planing are for more moderate instances of gum disease.
