Osseous Surgery

When a pocket elimination procedure is not enough to make the pocket shallower around certain teeth, it may be due to the fact that the bone supporting these teeth has taken on an irregular architecture as a result of an uneven progression of the periodontal disease.  The bone surrounding these teeth needs to be reshaped in order to remove any defects caused by destructive periodontal disease.

At Implant Perio Centre Northshore, the osseous surgical procedure (bone reshaping) is used to smooth and correct defects and irregularities in the bone surrounding the diseased teeth with the ultimate goal of reducing or eliminating the periodontal pockets.
