Periodontal surgery is the technique used to treat the tissues of the mouth affected by periodontal disease or pyorrhoea, a chronic bacterial infection that attacks the gums, ligaments and bone surrounding the tooth. Periodontal surgery allows the dentist to clean the contaminated tissues, smooth the root surfaces of the damaged dental piece and eliminate the pockets of infection. Periodontal surgery can replace or rebuild damaged structures using bone-like materials and also transplant lost tissue from the gums. In this way, gums can be reattached to the base of the teeth. The surgery should be accompanied by complementary periodontal maintenance.
Periodontal surgery refers to surgery around the teeth and below the gum line. The surgery is usually carried out to remove plaque and tartar from the tooth and below the gums, and to treat other diseases and infections of the teeth such as periodontitis and periodontal disease, an aggressive infection that destroys the structures of the teeth and causes tooth loss.
The purpose of periodontal surgery is to remove bacteria from below the gums, reshape the bones that support the teeth and to prevent further gum damage.
The surgery is performed by a dentist or oral surgeon, and is usually performed under general anaesthetic, though a sedative may be used. There are a number of different surgical procedures to choose from:
Following surgery the recovery depends on the severity of the disease and the type of surgery performed. Bleeding and discomfort are likely following surgery, though normal activity should be possible within a day or two of the surgery.
You may be required to eat soft foods for one or two weeks following surgery, and it may be recommended to avoid hot drinks.
