If you are dealing with the advanced stages of gum disease, Dr. William Strutz may recommend a surgical periodontal treatment. There are several types of periodontal surgery available, and our periodontist will evaluate your oral health and discuss your options with you to create a treatment plan that meets your needs.

One of the primary surgical options is gingival flap surgery, also known as pocket reduction surgery. This procedure involves the separation of the gum tissue from the teeth, allowing for a thorough cleaning of the periodontal pockets. Once cleaned, the gum tissue is reattached, reducing the depth of the pockets and promoting gum healing.

Another common surgical approach is gingivectomy, a procedure aimed at removing excess gum tissue that covers the teeth. This removal not only improves aesthetics but also provides a better surface for cleaning the teeth effectively.

Gingivoplasty is another surgical technique that focuses on reshaping healthy gum tissue around the teeth. This not only enhances the appearance of the gums but also contributes to overall oral health. Crown lengthening and gum grafting are specific forms of gingivoplasty used to address various gum-related issues.

After any periodontal surgery, it is crucial to follow post-surgery instructions diligently. Our periodontist will provide you with detailed guidance on how to care for the treated area properly, ensuring a smooth and successful recovery.
