If you have advanced periodontitis, treatment may require dental surgery or periodontal surgery, such as:

  • Flap surgery (pocket reduction surgery). Dr. Badí Haddú makes small incisions in your gum in order to lift a section of the gum tissue, exposing the roots for more effective scaling and root planing. Because periodontitis often causes bone loss, the underlying bone can be recontoured before the gum tissue is sutured in place. Once it heals, it is easier to clean these areas and keep the gum tissue healthy.

  • Soft tissue grafts. When you lose gum tissue, the gum line recedes. You may need to reinforce some of the damaged soft tissue. This is usually done through a periodontal surgery procedure, removing a small amount of tissue from the roof of the mouth (palate) or using tissue from another donor source and attaching it to the affected site. This can help reduce gum recession, cover exposed roots, and give your teeth a nicer appearance.

  • Bone injert. This procedure is done when periodontitis has destroyed the bone that surrounds the root of the tooth. The graft It can be made up of small pieces of your own bone, or the bone can be synthetic or donated. The bone graft helps prevent tooth loss by keeping your tooth in place. It also serves as a platform for natural bone regrowth.

  • Guided tissue regeneration. This allows the regrowth of bone that was destroyed by bacteria. Dr. Haddú places a special structure of biocompatible tissue between the existing bone and your tooth. The material prevents unwanted tissue from entering the healing area, allowing the bone to grow back.
