Surgery to Eliminate Bone Infections and to Regenerate Lost Bone
If your periodontal disease has progressed into the bone around your teeth, it is likely that a surgical procedure will be necessary to eliminate the infection. In the past, these procedures sometimes removed gum tissues and resulted in longer teeth. Today, newer procedures are used that are not only more effective but also more aesthetic. These minor surgical procedures eliminate the infection that has invaded the bone and often, the lost bone can be regenerated through a variety of bone grafting techniques. Dr. Strutz will carefully review your options and answer any questions you might have.
