Surgical gum treatments and their benefits

As you can see below, a number of types of treatment are available. Which choice is right for you depends on the type of gum disease and how much damage has occurred, or if you have any other concerns.

Periodontal surgery

To improve access to clean the roots, reduce or eliminate gum pockets & bring back gum health.

Periodontal regeneration

To restore bone lost around teeth or to build up bone before implants or bridges are placed

Root resection

Usually this tooth would be extracted after a failed root canal treatment but removing the diseased root of this molar and leaving the healthy root intact saves the tooth.

Tunnel preparation

Advanced gum disease can result in significant bone loss around molars so rather than extracting the tooth, we recontour the gum and bone between the roots of a molar to allow access to clean with a bottle brush. Look how successful we have been in arresting the bone loss and saving the tooth!

After

Accessing Tunnel (furcation) with Tepe (bottle) brush
