Periodontal Procedures

Flap Surgery

Problem:

Periodontal pockets greater than 4mm in depth contain excessive bacterial plaque leaving the gum tissue at risk of chronic infection.

Uncontrolled accumulation of plaque below the surface of the gum tissue results in bone destruction and deepening of pockets.

 

Treatment:

Dr. Gordon performs periodontal flap surgery that allows for precise attachment (sealing) of the gum tissue and reduces periodontal pocketing.

 

Your Health Benefits:

When pockets are reduced, the tooth and root surfaces are easier to clean and maintain by patients, dentists and hygienists.

Decreased mobility or looseness of the teeth as periodontal health improves.

 

Your Risks With No Treatment:

Increased risk for additional bone loss (deepening of the pockets thereby producing more space for bacterial plaque accumulation).

Increased mobility or looseness of the teeth.

Increased risk of tooth loss.

Plaque and tartar deposits accumulate in deep periodontal (gum) pockets that result in bone and support loss around the affected tooth.
