Periodontal Surgery

Is a surgical procedure on the gums and bone to eliminate periodontal diseases. Periodontal disease is the result of an accumulation of bacterial plaque around the teeth and gums, combined with host immuno-inflammatory mechanisms and other risk factors which lead to destruction of the supporting bone around natural teeth. Untreated, these diseases lead to alveolar bone loss and tooth loss and, to date, continue to be the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
