Periodontal flap surgery is necessary when pockets and infection still remain after root planning. After making sure all the areas are completely numb, we gently separate the gums from the tooth, this creates a flap and gives us access to the infected areas we then remove any plaque and tarter from the root surfaces, the area is reshaped and the gum line is adjusted to make it easier for you to keep the teeth plaque free, any sore after surgery can be handled with mild pain medication.
