47.2% of Adults Age 30 and Over Struggle with Some Form of Gum Disease

Gum disease is a progressive infection that left untreated can cause severe damage to the teeth, gums and supporting bone structures. While gum disease is very common, many people are unaware they have it because symptoms such as bleeding gums, bad breath or loose teeth often develop slowly. Drs. Mario Canal and Ben Calem often recommend osseous surgery which rids the mouth of harmful bacteria to restore health to the smile.

A Time-Tested Treatment with Proven Results

Osseous surgery has been a reliable gum disease treatment for decades. The procedure starts with a local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout. Our doctors then gain access to areas beneath the gumline. The exposed teeth and bone are then thoroughly cleaned and the bone smoothed. The gum tissue is then reattached and you are left with a healthier smile.

Osseous surgery affords the following advantages:

  • Eliminates active infection
  • Improves oral and overall health
  • Reduces periodontal pockets
  • Prevents tooth loss due to gum disease
  • Reduces or eliminates symptoms such as bad breath and bleeding gums
  • Improves the aesthetics of the smile
