Pocket Reduction Surgery Summit, NJ

The primary purpose of pocket reduction surgery (osseous surgery) is to reduce the pockets between the base of teeth and gums. These pockets generally result from advanced gum or periodontal disease. The surgery also removes bacteria that get inside the pockets and wear down bone and supportive tissue.

There are different types of pocket reduction surgery, depending on the nature and severity of the damage from bacteria. This procedure can help bring back a patient's natural smile and help them avoid tooth extraction. Regular dental check-ups, professional cleanings, and good oral hygiene can prevent most cases of gum disease that require pocket reduction surgery.

Pocket reduction surgery is available at Summit Periodontics & Dental Implants in Summit and the surrounding area. Call us at (908) 219-6664 to learn more or schedule an appointment.
