Osseous and Flap Surgery

When the pockets around teeth become deep and bone has been destroyed by periodontal disease progression, flap surgery may be necessary in order to gain access to the roots of the teeth to remove calculus, plaque and diseased tissue. Sometimes bone must be reshaped or bone added to replace bone loss. This surgery takes about an hour and in most cases can be done under local anesthesia.
