If you are suffering from gum disease, we may recommend surgery. Periodontal surgery can prevent future gum damage and can restore and reshape the bones in your mouth. Gum disease can produce a wide array of symptoms, including bloody or swollen gums, loose teeth, bad breath, pain, and a receding gum line. These symptoms range from inconvenient to disruptive, and surgery may be the only effective solution.
Surgery for gum disease ranges from flap surgery to bone grafting and everything in between. We will analyze your individual needs and determine which procedure is best for you. For the surgery, you will be given a sedative or anesthesia, so it is important to have a ride home after your procedure.
If you are having gum pain or discomfort, or notice that your gums are swollen or receding, contact our office immediately.
