Surgical
Gum Cleaning Effectively Improve Your Gum’s Health & Appearance

What is
Surgical Gum Cleaning?

For more advanced periodontal conditions or for the conditions that are “unresponsive” to deep cleaning approach, surgical approach can be involved. This involves surgically opening the involved gum tissues and debride away the plaque and tartar in the affected regions. The area is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected and sutured back up for healing.

What are the symptoms?

Many people with gum disease are not aware of the problem. Often the disease is painless.

Common signs are:

  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen, bleed easily, or pull away from the tooth
  • Pus around the teeth and gums

The follow-up care:

The dentist will prescribe an antibiotic for the infection and an over-the-counter pain reliever to ease any discomfort. The dentist may recommend follow-up appointments to verify healing, confirm the removal of bacteria and monitor your oral health. Depending on the conditions, medications and suitable mouthwashes may be used. All periodontal treatments require good monitoring and thorough on-going care.
