Healthy Gums = Healthy Smiles
Periodontal disease is a leading cause of tooth loss. That’s why Dr. Rob D’Orazio offers periodontal treatment to ensure the health of your smile. Whether you need osseous surgery to treat gum disease or gum grafting to restore your receding gums, the Dental Implant Institute provides exceptional periodontal care.
Osseous Surgery for Periodontal Disease
Osseous surgery is a traditional gum surgery that is effective in the fight against periodontal disease when all other methods have failed. Our doctor lifts the gum tissue away from the bone in order to clean and smooth the root surfaces. The gum tissue is then trimmed to reduce the size of the periodontal pocket and then stitched in place while the tissue heals.
