What is Surgical Periodontal Care?
Surgical periodontal care includes procedures that encourage tissue regeneration, such as bone and gum grafting. It also includes removal or reshaping of tissue, such as in crown lengthening procedures. These procedures serve to improve the health of the support structures for the teeth, allowing them to stay securely in place for your lifetime.
Benefits of Surgical Periodontal Care
Periodontal surgery provides a variety of benefits:
- Improve jaw bone health. Surgical periodontal care can improve the health of your jaw bone, which helps your existing teeth stay secure and makes it possible for a dental implant to replace a tooth.
- Improve gum health. Periodontal surgery can treat and prevent gum disease as well as reverse the effects, such as receding gums.
- Secure your teeth in place. All periodontal surgeries improve the support structures for your teeth (jaw, gums, etc.), which hold your teeth securely in place.
- Improve your appearance. Surgical periodontal care can improve your facial structure and your smile.
