Periodontal surgery, often referred to as gum surgery, may be necessary for a variety of dental conditions. Periodontal surgery is used primarily in the treatment of gum disease to repair damage caused by infection and includes:
– Regrowing of bone and tissue
– Reshaping the jaw bone
– Reducing gaps formed between the teeth and gums
Periodontal surgery is also very effective in fighting possible infections caused by bacteria.
