Periodontal Surgery

Stop Gum Disease from Worsening with Periodontal Surgery

Periodontal (gum) disease will progress if untreated. Periodontal surgery is necessary when initial treatment cannot effectively prevent the disease from advancing.

The techniques used in periodontal surgery provide access to your tooth and gum tissue below the gum line. Treating and cleaning the areas on and around your tooth roots is the goal of each procedure.

Periodontal surgery procedures can include flap surgery. This treatment removes (raises) your gum tissue to clean the areas beneath and remove harmful bacteria that cause gum disease.

Other periodontal surgery treatments can include bone grafts and tissue grafts. These procedures enable your tissue to be restored and regenerated to improve tooth support and eliminate bacteria within unhealthy, diseased tissue.

Contact your periodontist in Falmouth and Yarmouth about your gum health. Schedule an oral examination to discuss treatment for periodontal (gum) disease including periodontal surgery.
