If you have severe periodontal disease and scaling and root planing treatment has not been successful in eliminating the gum infection, you will be in search of an affordable gingival flap surgery, and Zara Dental Services can help guide you through the treatment process.
To begin this process, you will receive a thorough tooth cleaning so that all tartar and plaque is removed. Then, in the surgery, the dental surgeon separates the gums from the teeth and folds the gums back so that they can reach the tooth’s root and the bone. Next, the dentist will remove inflamed tissue, followed by scaling and root planing, which is basically an intensive removal of tartar and plaque. Lastly, the gums are replaced and stitched using either dissolvable stitches or standard surgical stitches, depending on the situation.
You will experience some discomfort after the procedure, but you will have a pain medicine prescription to help. In fact, most patients do well with over-the-counter pain medications only. After about 7 to 10 days, your dentist will reexamine your gums checking to make sure that they are remain clean and are healing properly.
As always, we at Zara Dental Services know that a procedure like this can cause stress and anxiety, and that is why we strive to provide a friendly, calm, and comforting environment where you can ask questions and get answers at each step of the process.
