Periodontal Flap Surgery

Share This Page

Periodontal flap surgery is a stage in gum therapy that requires the removal of excess soft tissue to stimulate healthy growth of gums.

Periodontal Flap Surgery

Periodontal flap surgery removes extra soft tissue and shapes the bone underneath so the area can heal. After that, the gums are sutured back into place to fit around the tooth.

Why periodontal flap surgery?

If you have gum disease, your dentist may recommend perio flap surgery. It is commonly used to repair periodontal pockets, which are a result of inflammation and infection. This may cause the tissue surrounding your teeth to become unattached from the tooth, requiring repair.
