The Goals of Osseous Surgery at Portal Dental Care
At Portal Dental Care, osseous surgery is designed to provide our dental specialists with unobstructed access to the tooth root. This crucial visibility allows us to thoroughly cleanse affected areas and entirely remove any damage.
When plaque and decaying gum tissue are eradicated, a pocket often forms between the gum and the tooth. Although this pocket can sometimes be partially closed as the gum heals, it typically necessitates more frequent professional cleanings. Osseous surgery can help by suturing the gum tissue to the areas where bone loss has occurred.
Our Houston-based team focuses on achieving the optimal size for this pocket through osseous surgery. We aim to create a space that you can easily maintain with daily oral hygiene practices, but that is also restrictive enough to minimize plaque and bacteria build-up.
