Periodontal surgery is performed when it has been determined that the tissues around your teeth are unhealthy and cannot be repaired with non-surgical treatment. New treatment options using refined techniques can be performed comfortably in our office. Your treatment can be made more pleasant by nitrous oxide, improved local anesthetics, oral pain and anti-anxiety agents as well as IV sedation.
During periodontal surgery, Dr. Roberts moves the gum away from the affected teeth in order to preserve healthy tissue while removing the bacteria and contaminants responsible for infection. After thoroughly cleaning root surfaces, bone grafting materials, barriers and tissue stimulating proteins may be used to create the environment for your body to regenerate healthy tissue and bone.
Peroidontal surgery saves teeth and eliminates harmful bacteria. Overall health is improved by reducing oral bacteria that have been scientifically linked to heart disease, diabetes, pregnancy complications, and other health concerns.
