Periodontal Flap Surgery
Gum Surgery, or Periodontal Flap Surgery, is a procedure to treat the Gingiva (Gums). Gingiva is the soft tissues of the mouth that surrounds the neck of the teeth and supports the bone.
Flap Surgery is an absolutely painless procedure done under local aneasthesia to temporarily separate the gums from the teeth giving the periodontist access the roots of the teeth and their supporting bone. This access also allows removal of diseased tissues, plaque and tartar which are the causative factors of periodontitis. Inflamed tissue is removed from between the teeth and from any holes (defects) in the bone. The periodontist then will do a procedure called scaling and root planing to clean plaque and tartar. It is used to treat moderate to severe cases of periodontal (Gum) disease.
Gum surgeries typically do not pose any kind of risks to the patients. It is also a very safe uncomplicated and painless dental chair side procedure done under local anaesthesia.
