Gingival flap surgery is the only effective method of treating advanced periodontal disease. This minor, painless procedure under local anaesthesia involves folding back the gums to reveal the roots of the affected teeth, enabling the surgeon to remove the inflamed tissue, bone defects and defects on the root surface. During flap surgery, we can also reshape the root furcations affected by the advanced periodontal disease. This creates better conditions for oral hygiene and improves the prognosis for the affected tooth.
Performed under local anaesthesia, the procedure is painless and is the only effective method of treating advanced periodontal disease. Today we have various types of lasers to facilitate and improve treatment, but they can only be used in the maintenance stage, after the plaque has been manually removed from the roots.
Thanks to contemporary precision techniques, microinstruments and various flap surgery procedures, it is possible to remedy major gum recession, ensure a sufficient amount of hard gum tissue around implants, perform aesthetic microsurgery to lengthen a clinical crown, etc.
