Surgical Treatment

When healthy, your supporting bone and gum tissue fits snugly around your teeth. When you have gingivitis, your gum tissue has become inflamed due to bacterial plaque but may be treated non-surgically. When this condition worsens, it may lead to an irreversible form of periodontal disease. These conditions are associated with inflammation and loss of your supporting bone and gum tissue, resulting in “pockets" or gaps around your teeth where these bacteria accumulate. As the disease progresses, the “pockets” get deeper and conditions deteriorate. These deep “pockets” are too deep to keep clean with daily home-care or professional cleanings. Increased tooth mobility and shifting, bad odor, bleeding gums, recession, and spacing between teeth are all signs of periodontal disease.

If surgical therapy has been recommended to treat your periodontal disease, a determination has been made that the tissues around your teeth may not be treated or repaired using non-surgical treatment. The following are the five types of surgical treatments commonly prescribed:

  • Pocket Reduction Procedures
  • Regenerative Procedures
  • Crown Lengthening
    • Conventional
    • Cosmetic
  • Soft Tissue Grafts
    • Cosmetic Gum Enhancement
    • Soft Tissue Augmentation
  • Dental Implants
