What Does Periodontal Surgery Involve?

Your dentist may recommend periodontal procedures for gum disease that has worsened beyond gingivitis, a condition that is called periodontitis. The aim is to remove accumulated bacterial scale and deposits (tartar) around the teeth and restore the gums to good health.
– Periodontists specialise in treating mild and severe gum problems.
– If not treated, the body’s inflammatory response to periodontitis can destroy soft tissue and affect the jaw bone.
– Prompt, professional treatment of diseased gums reduces inflammation and minimises the risk of tooth loss.
Regular checkups at your dentist help to minimise the risk of periodontal problems.
