Dental Flap surgery addresses gum disease by mending the periodontal pocket. These pockets exist beneath the gum line, where tissue has detached from the teeth, forms an unclean space that allows bacteria to proliferate, causing sensitivity, inflammation, bleeding, and discomfort. It may not entirely prevent periodontal disease, but it does create a space to maintain your periodontal health. The cost of flap surgery in Hyderabad depends on procedure type and severity of your gum disease.
WHY GET GUM PERIODONTAL SURGERY?
For patients with moderate to severe periodontitis, flap surgery is usually recommended:
For patients with advanced periodontitis, flap surgery renders several benefits including:
You will be given an injection to numb the area. Then, the dentist will detach the gums from the teeth using a scalpel. It will be raised and folded back in flap form, allowing direct access to the roots and teeth bone.
The inflamed tissue between the teeth and defected bone will be removed. Scaling and Root planing are performed to clean plaque and tartar. In case of any bone defects, your dentist will eliminate them using files or rotating burs and it is called osseous recontouring.
The gums are stitched back in place; the stitches may dissolve or need to be removed a week later. Also, a bandage is used to cover the surgical site.
