These areas are thoroughly cleaned and smoothed, then sutured to initiate healing. Osseous surgery is typically performed for those with moderate to advanced stages of gum disease, or in areas resistant to other treatment methods.
- Scaling and Root Planing: In its early stages, gum disease is often well-managed with scaling and root planing therapy. A non-surgical treatment, scaling and root planing removes plaque, tartar and bacterial deposits residing on root surfaces beneath the gum line, resulting in reduced periodontal pocketing and improved gum health. Expect minimal post-operative discomfort and a fast return to normal activities when undergoing scaling and root planing for gum disease treatment.
