Any type of surgery causes certain levels of stress and anxiety but as an expert in his field with an exceptional success rate, Dr. Ostro makes sure that you’re comfortable and understand all aspects of your pocket reduction surgery. Dental (periodontal) pockets are areas beneath the gums that collect bacteria. The gums can become sensitive and inflamed, may bleed during brushing or flossing and root sensitivity can also become an issue. If left untreated, these pockets can cause a multitude of serious issues, ultimately resulting in tooth loss. Pocket reduction surgery is a treatment that helps to reduce the depth of the bacteria-collecting pockets. Our New York City oral surgeon usually performs periodontal surgery under a local anesthetic but additional sedation is an option for your added comfort.
Periodontal surgery is usually a very gentle procedure where the gum tissue is lightly pulled back and all the bacteria, tartar and plaque found there is removed. Once the bacteria, tartar and plaque are removed, the gum tissue is secured back around the teeth with tiny stitches. Depending on the condition of the area worked on, the stitches may be self-dissolving or may need to be removed during a follow-up appointment. Your initial follow-up appointment will be about a week after surgery and then three weeks after that. Our New York City oral surgeon along with our dedicated staff, are with you every step of the way and we make ourselves available for whatever questions or concerns you may have.
