How to Treat Periodontitis?

In the mild to moderate cases a non-surgical approach called Root Planning will be used to treat the disease. In these cases the bacteria will be cleaned away without reflecting the gum. In severe cases you will need to treat it with Periodontal Flap Surgery. This is done with a surgical procedure involving the reflection of the gum from the infected teeth to provide direct access and visibility to facilitate a thorough cleaning of all the infected root surfaces.

You will have a local anesthetic for this procedure and there will be several small sutures that will stay in place for between 5-7 days. You can expect discomfort for anything up to a week. It is vitally important to keep the areas involved spotlessly clean. This involves the brushing techniques that will be demonstrated, interdental cleaning, and warm salt rinses (after the first day). If bleeding occurs during cleaning this is not unusual, the bleeding will help the healing process and not interfere with the sutures. We will arrange to see you again in a month or so after surgery to ensure everything is healing as well as it should be and also to re-enforce your hygiene/brushing techniques.
