Gum disease can cause your gums to bleed and become infected, swollen or tender. As a result, the infected gum starts to separate from the teeth and a pocket develops. If left untreated, this infection can spread to the bone and cause bone loss.
Furthermore, this infection can not only result in losing your teeth, but can also spread to the rest of your body.
Periodontal disease has been associated with heart disease, diabetes, premature births and a slew of other systemic health problems.
Periodontal disease is the infection of the gums and bones. When you get bone loss you start losing the support of your teeth. Your teeth becomes loose and falls out. Osseous is a periodontal procedure that allows us to correct the gum and bone infection directly so you don’t get any more bone loss.
We numb you up the same way you would get a filling. The gum and bone is recontoured and the infection from under the gums is removed. The periodontal pocket and all the remaining plaque and tarter is also removed.
Shine Dental Associates has the ability to grow back the bone you lost from the infection. Bone grafting is placed in the area you lost your bone. This is done at the SAME time you are having the osseous procedure. You go to work the same day! Minimal discomfort and swelling occurs.
While most procedures are done with just local anesthetics or nitrous oxide (laughing gas)…sedation is always available for anxious patients.
