Have You Been Diagnosed With Moderate to Severe Periodontal Disease?
When you develop deep pockets around the teeth because of gum disease, you may need to undergo a pocket depth reduction procedure to restore your oral health. Dr. Ann Astolfi performs osseous surgery on patients who have moderate to advanced periodontal disease. This treatment may be especially effective when other periodontal procedures, such as scaling and root planing, have proven to be ineffective.
Reasons to Undergo Flap Surgery
If you have deep pockets around the teeth and are noticing that teeth are starting to shift or become loose, or if you have bleeding gums, you may be a good candidate for flap surgery. This periodontal procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, and you will notice results immediately. It is especially effective for restoring the oral health of patients with gum disease who have very deep pockets or pockets that are only getting worse with time.
