In some advanced cases, it may not be sufficient to just perform non-surgical debridement. Further treatment in the form of periodontal surgery therefore be needed, if there is severe inflammation and deep pockets. Surgical techniques are more advanced and generally minimally invasive.

What happens during periodontal surgery

The aim of periodontal surgery is to restore and regenerate the lost structures that support the tooth, these include, the soft tissue and bone. Gingival flap surgery is a type of gum procedure and is carried out if gum pockets are greater than 5mm. This typically involves separating the gum away from the tooth temporarily under local anaesthesia. This will allow the Specialist to gain better access so they are able to deride and clean the root surfaces, re-contour the bone around the teeth, and reposition the soft tissues.

Hand instruments and ultrasonic scalers are used to remove the plaque, calculus and bacterial toxins. The gum will be placed back against the teeth and stitches will be placed to secure it into position. Then a periodontal pack/dressing will be placed over it.
