Transform Your Smile with Gum Surgery

Ready to reclaim your oral health and confidence? Say hello to pocket reduction surgery also know as Osseous surgery or flap surgery – your key to battling periodontal disease and preserving your smile. Here's what you need to know:

What is Pocket Reduction Surgery? Also known as gingivectomy or flap surgery, it's a series of procedures aimed at accessing tooth roots to remove bacteria and tartar buildup below the gum line.

Why is it Essential? Periodontal disease wreaks havoc by causing inflammation, bone loss, and gum tissue destruction. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and even impact overall health.

Benefits of Pocket Reduction Surgery:

  • Bacterial Control: Reduces bacteria to prevent systemic infections and safeguard overall health.
  • Bone Preservation: Halts bone loss caused by chronic inflammation, preserving tooth stability.
  • Improved Home Care: Makes it easier to clean teeth effectively, reducing the risk of further infections.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Restores the smile's beauty by stopping gum disease progression and improving gum health.

What to Expect During Surgery:

  • Thorough examinations to assess oral health.
  • Removal of bacteria and tartar buildup below the gum line.
  • Root planning to smooth tooth surfaces and prevent bacterial reattachment.
  • Application of antimicrobial treatment to promote healing.
  • Suturing of gums for 5-10 days post-surgery.

Embrace Your Healthy Smile: While some sensitivity may occur initially, pocket reduction surgery offers a significant reduction in pocket depth and a remarkable improvement in overall oral health. Get ready to flash that confident smile once again!
