Do Not Wait To Save Your Teeth

Gum Flap Surgery Can Save Your Teeth And Improve Your Overall Health. 

Don't Give Up The Fight On Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, if left untreated, can lead to devastating bone and tooth loss. Periodontal disease has also been linked to other serious health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease, you might have already undergone treatments for addressing the infection, such as scaling and root planing. If prior treatments do not seem to be improving your condition, there is hope. Gum flap surgery, also called osseous surgery, is an effective treatment to remove root surface tartar deposits, smooth bone irregularities, and reduce pocket depths to ultimately save your teeth. There is no time to lose. If you have gum disease in Albuquerque, NM, call 505-219-4863 to seek treatment immediately with Dr. Craig Steichen.

What Is Osseous Surgery?

Gum flap surgery is for those who have moderate to severe gum disease and is usually performed if prior treatments have not improved the condition. The goal of osseous surgery is to create a clean environment around your teeth, reduce pocket depths by removing plaque, bacteria, and tartar deep beneath the gum line, and create smooth bone and root surfaces to encourage reattachment of healthy tissue.
