PERIODONTAL SURGERY Q & A
Periodontal surgery is an advanced treatment often prescribed for severe cases of periodontal gum disease. Did you know there are three different types of periodontal surgery? Periodontal surgery comprises several sophisticated procedures.
The first type of periodontal surgery is gingival flap surgery, which most patients pertain to as gum lift surgery. Gum lift surgery recontours the gums in order to improve the appearance of the smile. It includes gingivoplasty and gingivectomy. Dentists often refer to these procedures interchangeably because they are basically the same procedure – but with different objectives.
Mucogingival surgery is a more complicated type of periodontal surgery. Dentists typically use this type of surgery for advanced periodontal gum disease, particularly when denuded root surfaces need coverage. We also recommend this procedure for removable denture patients mainly to deepen the oral vestibule and relocate free. The oral vestibule is the space bounded by the lip/cheeks and teeth.
Lastly, osseous surgery, like mucogingival surgery, is a form of advanced periodontal disease treatment that focuses on the management of the destruction caused by periodontal gum disease. As the name suggests, it involves the manipulation of the bone tissue, particularly reshaping or restoring its ideal form. This is based on the assumption that resolution of periodontal gum disease will occur if the bone and gums have the same contour.
