Gum Disease, such as Gingivitis and Periodontitis are conditions that may require surgical intervention, also known as periodontal surgery.
Gingivitis is a less serious form of gum disease and symptoms may include red, swollen and bleeding gums.
Periodontitis is an advanced form of Gingivitis, where the inflammation progresses and becomes more severe, leading to the deterioration of bone and soft tissues. During this process, the gum starts to separate from the tooth resulting in deep gaps on the side of the tooth which are also known as pockets, trapping bacteria and leading to further infection. Ultimately, if left untreated it can lead to the loss of teeth, bone and destruction of gum tissue.
Sometimes, Gum Surgery is the best option in order to treat these conditions.
Periodontal Surgery comprises a vast number of procedures that help regrow and regenerate not only damaged tissues but also prevents tooth loss and eliminates resistant bacteria that cause serious infection.
