Osseous surgery is a periodontal service that involves shaping the bone around a tooth to treat defects. Periodontal disease often results in small holes developing in teeth and in the bones surrounding the teeth. Bacteria and debris can become trapped in these holes, leading to increased infection and discomfort. When other therapies fail to treat your gum disease, our periodontist may recommend osseous surgery in order to save the tooth and keep the surrounding area clear of infection. Dr. Akram Rafla has extensive training and experience in performing osseous surgery in Worcester, Massachusetts, and will work hard to ensure that your treatment at our office is as pain free as possible.
