Osseous Grafting / Guided Tissue Regeneration

Osseous Surgery is done to treat diseased root and bone area. Osseous surgery usually treats periodontitis. Patients suffering from periodontitis experience defects in the bone around their teeth. The osseous surgery treats bone loss around multiple teeth. Osseous grafting is a regular procedure with a high success rate.

Before the surgery, the patient goes through a periodontal treatment that includes scaling and root planing. These procedures are administered with local anesthesia to minimize the pain. When the roots are cleaned, the dentist starts reshaping the surrounding bone of the teeth using a drill and sharp tool. The deformed bone is removed depending upon the level of extent and rest of the teeth is shaped. If the defects are extensively large, then bone grafting material is used. When the bones are back to their original shape, the gums are stitched back into place.
