How Osseous Surgery Improves Health
Advanced stages of gum disease not only damage your oral structures but increase your risk for systemic health complications as well. Research has shown a link between advanced periodontal disease and health conditions like diabetes, respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. Treating gum disease with osseous surgery in Kennewick, WA can effectively restore health to your smile and improve your physical health.
During osseous surgery, we clear the calculus and bacteria that are causing inflammation and infection. Next, we trim away the diseased gum tissues and reshape damaged bone. By restoring health to these structures, we create a better oral environment that helps preserve teeth, bone, and gums in the future while restoring proper function and smile esthetics. Without chronic inflammation affecting your systemic health, you experience better overall health and the ability to eat, talk, and laugh comfortably and confidently.
