Gum disease commonly known as Pyorrhea can progress to the bone when left
untreated and cause bone loss (Periodontitis).
The treatment generally involves cleaning (scaling) and polishing of teeth
followed by a Flap Surgery. In this treatment, the dentist lifts the gums to access
the roots beneath and thoroughly cleans them up with special instruments and
Dental Lasers such as (Biolase Epic X which we use at Dental Folks). You may
require stitches and soft diet for a few days. There may be some bleeding and
discomfort after the treatment and the healing usually takes a week to 10 days.
Prescription antibiotics and mouth rinses may be suggested as per the condition.
It is advised to avoid smoking after the procedure.
