Using osseous surgery, Dr. Aaron T. Ward can access the roots of your tooth to remove the plaque and bacteria that cause gum disease. Osseous surgery, also known as gingivectomy or pocket reduction surgery, helps to reshape and remove pockets surrounding your teeth to reduce your gum disease. This procedure can also be used to eliminate excessive gum tissue. Call us at 801-394-6651 to learn more about osseous surgery in Ogden, Utah, and to schedule your consultation with our periodontist.
