Remove toxins affecting your gum health.
Reduce the progression of periodontal disease.
Osseous surgery is performed to gain access to the diseased root and bone area, remove bacteria and infected gums, reduce pocketing and set the stage for periodontal health. The gums and bone are reshaped so that the gum tissue can adhere strongly to your teeth, allowing both you and your dental professionals to more effectively and completely remove plaque. During the procedure, the pockets are reduced or eliminated. Some temperature sensitivity is common after osseous surgery, but it typically lessens over time.
- Reducing bacteria and inflammation
- Preventing future bone loss
- Facilitating home care – as the pockets become deeper they become impossible to keep clean using day to day home care methods. Osseous surgery aims to reduce the pocket size therefore creating an environment that is more hygienic and easier to maintain

Welcome To Acharya Periodontics
What is a Periodontist?
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.
Dr. Acharya, board certified in Periodontics and dental implant surgery, can treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. She can offer non-surgical and surgical treatment options specifically suited to patient needs and preferences.
