Periodontal surgery is a blanket term for a procedure that addresses gum disease. Pocket reduction and grafting are two of the most common options. If you suffer from gingivitis or periodontitis, and non-surgical methods don't help to resolve it, periodontal surgery could rectify the problem.
However, certain medical conditions—such as diabetes, smoking, or chewing tobacco—may contribute to periodontal disease and may reverse the results of periodontal surgery. So if you are considering surgery, we will discuss different surgery options and lifestyle changes to ensure the surgery has a long-lasting effect.
