Eliminate Bacteria, Reduce Inflammation and Save Your Teeth with Osseous Surgery.
Gum Surgery with Dr. Selma Kaplan
Osseous surgery, or flap surgery, is a gum surgery that aims at stopping the vicious cycle of bacteria-growing pockets that surround your teeth. Your gums are sufficiently numb for this procedure to ensure your comfort during your appointment. The gums are gently pulled back to allow access to the roots of your teeth. Bacteria and tartar are removed from above and below your gum line and the roots of your teeth are smoothed with a planing procedure to encourage reattachment of healthy tissue, thus reducing pocket depths. Your gums are gently put back in placed and secured with tiny sutures.
Dr. Selma Kaplan is a board-certified periodontist in Norwalk, CT, and has been in practice for 11 years. To learn more about stopping bone loss with osseous surgery and about other gum surgery provided, please call our office at your earliest convenience. We look forward to speaking with you.
