Periodontal Surgery

Gum tissue is designed to fit snugly around your tooth. When disease is present, the fit is loose and bacteria collect even more in these pocket areas causing bone loss. If pocketing is not eliminated by scaling and root planing, the pockets will need to be surgically eliminated by removing diseased tissue and bone, creating a tight fit around the tooth that can be kept clean.

In some cases, bone graft and tissue membranes may also be placed in an effort to rebuild the supporting structures around the teeth.
