OSSEOUS GRAFTING AND WHAT IT MEANS

Osseous surgery is a procedure that reshapes the bone which holds your teeth in place. Most commonly, osseous grafting treats periodontitis. Patients with periodontitis experience defects in the bone around their teeth. The osseous surgery removes those defects.

Prior to the surgery, the patient undergoes a periodontal treatment that consists or scaling and root planing. A local anesthetic is administered to minimize the pain. Once the roots are cleaned, the dentist uses a drill and sharp dental tool to reshape the bone surrounding the teeth.

Depending on the extent of the defects, the deformed bone is removed, and the rest is shaped. Bone grafting material is used where the defects are too large to be treated with only reshaping. Once the bones are back to their original state, the gums are stitched back into place. Osseous Grafting is a routine procedure, with a high success rate.
