Osseous resective surgery

Dr. Martina Audagna, student of the School, talk about her surgical experience.

Often periodontal patients, after etiological therapy, they have residual pocket that must be corrected surgically. Osseous resective surgery is an option for the treatment of shallow intraosseous defects (less than 3 mm). This type of surgery aims to eliminate the pocket re-establishing a physiological architecture of hard and soft tissues, improving the level of home oral hygiene. I performed this kind of surgical session on my patient, using the osseous fibers retention technique and suturing flaps apically to the bony crest in order to gain keratinized tissue.
