Flap Operation

When non-surgical methods are not enough to address the effects of gum disease, gum flap surgery can restore the health of your smile. When left untreated, periodontal disease can cause extensive damage to the supporting structures of your teeth and eventually lead to tooth loss. Our professional specialists can perform a flap procedure to stop the progression of gum disease. It involves incising the gums and temporarily pulling the tissue away from the teeth to treat the roots and jawbone directly. Our specialists provide multiple forms of anesthesia and sedation to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Flap surgery is typically done under local anesthesia, sometimes accompanied by oral anti-anxiety medications; alternatively, it may be performed under intravenous conscious sedation. After anesthesia has taken effect, a small incision is made to separate the gums from the teeth. The outer gum tissue is gently folded back to give access to the roots and the supporting ligament and bone tissue.

Next, the inflamed gum tissue can be removed, and the tooth roots can be cleaned; if needed, the area may also be treated with antibiotics or other medications. Bone defects can be repaired with grafting material, and proper regeneration of the periodontal ligament can be encouraged by physical (barrier membranes) and chemical (growth factors) methods. Finally, the incision is closed, and the procedure is completed. The time it takes to complete the procedure depends on the extent of the damage and how many gum areas are affected. Anesthesia will prevent pain during surgery. Pain and discomfort after the procedure can be managed with medications. Performed by an experienced hand, state-of-the-art flap surgery has an excellent track record and offers well-established benefits. It’s often the treatment of choice for relieving periodontal disease and helping to maintain your oral health — and preserve your teeth.
