Step 5: Periodontal surgery

This surgery is indicated for persistent deep pockets found during re-assessment of periodontal treatment.

What does periodontal surgery involve?

  • It is carried out under local anaesthetic.
  • Detachment of the gum is performed to allow direct access to the very deep pockets.
  • Rigorous cleaning is carried out.
  • If need be, bone filling or specific substances such as gels or membranes may be used.
  • The gums are repositioned and kept in place with sutures.
  • The post-operative after-effects are the same as those of mouth surgery.
