What is Flap Surgery?

Flap Surgery, also known as Periodontal Flap Surgery, is a specialized dental procedure aimed at treating advanced gum disease (periodontitis) and certain gum-related issues. It involves gently lifting the gum tissue to access and thoroughly clean the tooth roots and underlying bone. This process allows our skilled periodontists to remove harmful bacteria, reduce inflammation, and promote the regeneration of healthy gum tissues.

When is Flap Surgery Needed?

Flap Surgery may be recommended when gum disease has progressed beyond the early stages (gingivitis) and developed into periodontitis. Signs that you may benefit from Flap Surgery include:
Gum pockets that measure 5mm or more, indicating a significant accumulation of plaque and tartar beneath the gumline.

X-rays revealing bone loss around the tooth roots due to untreated gum disease.

Receding gumline exposing the tooth roots, making them more susceptible to decay and sensitivity. 

Gum tissues that remain inflamed and bleed easily despite regular dental care.
