Surgical treatment

Daily brushing and flossing, along with regular visits to the dentist, will help keep your teeth healthy and strong. But good oral hygiene isn’t just for your teeth-it also keeps your gums healthy. Regular oral exams give your dentist the chance to detect gum disease in its early stages and treat it before it progresses.

When you skip your dental visits for too long, untreated gum disease can leave you with infected and damaged gums that require surgery. If you have been advised by your dentist in Amirad Family Dentistry to have gum surgery, here is what you need to know.




Types of gum surgery

The type of gum surgery you need depends on the severity of your gum disease and the specific damage it has done, or the type of cosmetic results you desire.

-Periodontal plastic surgery procedure
