Osseous Surgery in Midtown Atlanta & Roswell
Treat advanced stages of gum disease.
When other treatments aren’t enough, osseous surgery can restore your health.
Gum disease can cause deep, problematic pockets around your teeth. Osseous surgery, also called pocket depth reduction, involves removing or recontouring damaged bone around the tooth to get rid of these pockets. This treatment also removes bacteria and tartar to stop the spread of gum disease.
Despite the name, osseous surgery isn’t overly invasive and can be done comfortably. Our periodontal team has years of experience and offers the most-trusted osseous surgery in Midtown Atlanta and Roswell.
Who needs osseous surgery?
You may be a candidate for a pocket depth reduction if you:
- Are suffering from advanced gum disease
- Have a lot of tartar deposits in deep pockets
- Are unable to get results from non-surgical treatments
- Are suffering from jaw bone damage
What to expect from osseous surgery
Our Roswell and Midtown Atlanta periodontists will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan.
This procedure is typically performed in one visit. We’ll help you understand how long your treatment may last so you know what to expect.
You can think of osseous surgery like an extra deep cleaning! You’ll be awake during the procedure, but we’ll numb the area so you won’t feel a thing.
