Treatment of Periodontal (Gum) Disease
If you're diagnosed with periodontal disease, your periodontist may recommend surgery. Periodontal surgery is necessary when your periodontist determines that the tissue around your teeth cannot be repaired with non-surgical treatment. The following are the four types of surgical treatments most commonly prescribed:
- Pocket Reduction Procedures
- Regenerative Procedures
- Crown Lengthening
- Soft Tissue Grafts
If you've already lost a tooth to periodontal disease, you may be interested in dental implants—the permanent tooth replacement option.
