Sometimes, periodontal surgery may be needed to treat certain gum diseases and conditions, such as gingivitis or periodontists. This type of surgery is commonly known as gum surgery.
The procedure aims to treat the gum disease and any damage it may have caused by:
· regrowing damaged bones and tissues
· preventing tooth loss
· reducing gum gaps between teeth, known as black triangles
· reshaping the jaw hone to lower the risk for bacterial growth in bone crevices
· eliminating bacteria and infection
