Are you experiencing advanced gum disease and looking for a comprehensive solution? Dr. Robert McLeod offers osseous surgery in Irvine, California, to effectively address and manage periodontal issues, aiming to restore your oral health and prevent further complications.

What is Osseous Surgery?

Osseous surgery, also known as pocket reduction surgery, is a procedure specifically designed to combat periodontal disease when it has affected the bone surrounding your teeth. The procedure involves reshaping the bones around the teeth to remove any irregularities and eliminate pockets where bacteria tend to collect. By smoothing out the bone and reducing these pockets, we can create a cleaner environment, making it easier for you to maintain good oral hygiene and halt the progression of gum disease.

What to Expect

When you choose to undergo osseous surgery at our practice, you can expect a systematic and patient-centric approach:

  • Thorough Evaluation: Our periodontist will conduct an extensive examination to assess the extent of the periodontal disease and determine the best course of action.
  • Personalized Treatment Plan: Based on the evaluation, a customized treatment plan will be developed to address your specific needs.
  • Surgical Procedure: The surgery is performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Dr. McLeod will carefully reshape the affected bones and reduce the pockets.
  • Post-Operative Care: You will be provided with clear instructions for post-operative care to ensure a smooth and swift recovery.
  • Follow-Up Appointments: Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your healing and ensure the success of the procedure.
