Osseous Surgery in Richmond Hill, GA

Osseous surgery in Richmond Hill, GA is a traditional periodontal disease treatment that Dr. Justin Bordlemay sometimes uses to remove unhealthy oral tissue and bacteria trapped between the teeth and gums.

Why Periodontal Disease Treatment is Important

• Periodontal disease is progressive and becomes worse without treatment.

• Periodontal disease treatment helps prevent tooth and bone loss.

• It improves the health and appearance of your teeth and gums.

• Untreated periodontal disease has been shown to cause other health problems in the body.

If you have periodontal disease, do not delay treatment. Treating it today will prevent serious problems later. Call us today for gentle, effective periodontal disease treatment with Dr. Bordlemay.

The Osseous Surgery Procedure

Anesthetic is administered to numb the affected areas.

Dr. Bordlemay will make an incision across the gum line and roll the tissue away from the teeth until the bone is exposed.

Plaque and tartar are cleared away from the surfaces of the teeth and the bone is smoothed to facilitate healing.
Dr. Bordlemay will shape the gum line and then suture it back together.

Dental putty or a special bandage is then placed along the affected area to protect the gums as they heal.

Recovering from Osseous Surgery

• Some post-surgical discomfort is expected but can be reduced with pain medication if needed.

• Stick to soft foods and liquids for a week or more to allow the gums to heal. Do not brush or floss the treated area but use the mouthwash Dr. Bordlemay prescribes to control plaque.

• The surgery may also cause some gum recession, which can make the teeth feel more sensitive to temperature. This can usually be controlled with sensitivity toothpaste.

• Dr. Bordlemay will ask you to come in for an exam in about 10 days to check your progress and remove the sutures, if necessary. Another visit is also required to make sure that your osseous surgery was successful.
