When you think of the dentist you probably immediately think of teeth, but don’t forget about your gums! Periodontal surgery, or gum surgery, may be required when dealing with issues with your gums such as gingivitis, periodontitis or other issues.
These gum diseases can cause a wide variety of issues, and, depending on the severity, periodontal surgery works to reverse these issues or help you recover as much as possible. This includes regrowing damaged tissue, preventing or removing black triangles between your teeth, eliminating bacteria and lowering the risk of further growth, as well as preventing tooth loss.
By maintaining good oral hygiene, you greatly reduce the risk of gum disease. However, if you begin to notice any issues with your gums, especially swelling, redness or bleeding, reach out to us immediately. It’s fully possible that gum disease can be treated without surgery, however waiting too long to get yourself checked out is not only painful, but can also begin to affect your overall health.
