Pocket Reduction Treatment

Periodontal disease is initiated by bacterial plaque causing gum inflammation. The inflammation spreads to the bone and creates bone loss. Deep periodontal pockets form around the teeth. These pockets become challenging for the patient to keep clean. In order to eliminate the pockets and prevent further bone loss from occurring, periodontal surgical corrective treatment is necessary. This surgery consists of reshaping the bone and simultaneously placing the gum tissue to a new position adjacent to the newly shaped bone. Therefore, the gum level and shape is consistent with the bone level and shape. Hence the pockets are reduced making cleaning around the teeth much more effective.
