Osseous Surgery Provides Access to Deep Periodontal Infection
Gum disease destroys the bone surrounding your teeth, leaving behind deep pockets of infection between the gums and tooth roots. Unfortunately, these areas are too deep for you to clean properly at home, and may require surgical help from a qualified periodontal specialist
Osseous surgery is a type of gum disease treatment allowing Board Certified Periodontist, Dr. Patrick McDonough,
to gently retract the gums and treat your active periodontal infection. Receiving this type of care from a patient-focused specialist like Dr. McDonough gives you the advanced treatment needed for reaching optimal periodontal health, and ultimately saving your teeth.
