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.
Placement of an implant is a harmless procedure.
It is carried out under strict aseptic conditions.
Carefully follow post-operative advice for optimum healing
