Periodontal surgery is a deep cleaning treatment carried out when traces of gum disease remain following deep hygiene treatment.
This specialist treatment can eliminate traces of bacteria that remain deep below the gum line. Successful treatment can save the affected teeth and the supporting bone structure.
Treatment will be carried out by our periodontal specialist. To access the affected area the gum will be lifted, and once the root area has been thoroughly cleaned a few stitches will be inserted to hold the gum in place until it heals.
As with other hygiene treatments your mouth will feel healthier and cleaner. Following treatment you will be given detailed advice to keep your teeth in the best possible condition.
