Gums Surgery

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a severe infection that affects the gum tissues. The root cause of this condition is the accumulation of harmful bacteria on the surface of your teeth and gums that live in the mouth and can cause inflammation, bleeding, and eventually, the loss of teeth. As the disease advances, it can inflict damage on your teeth and bones, which can eventually result in tooth loss. There are many symptoms of gum disease including gums that are red, puffy, or bleeding or loose teeth, pain to chewing, bad breath, Gums that recede or slip away from your teeth, and deep pockets between your gums and teeth. Therefore, we prescribe necessary gums surgery to prevent the progression of gum disease.



Gums surgery, also known as periodontal surgery, is a dental procedure that involves the removal and reshaping of gum tissue to treat various gum diseases. Gum surgery may also involve grafting tissue onto the gums to help restore lost gum tissue. This type of surgery is typically performed by a periodontist, a dental specialist who focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease. Gum surgery may be necessary if a patient has gum disease that has progressed to a point where non-surgical treatments, such as scaling and root planing, are no longer effective. 



During gums surgery, a dentist or periodontist will make incisions in the gums to remove damaged tissue and bacteria. The gums will then be repositioned and sutured in place to promote healing. Depending on the severity of the gum disease, additional treatments may be required, such as bone grafts or gum tissue regeneration. Gum surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia and may require multiple visits to the dentist or periodontist.

Our Treatment Process

Initial consultation

The first step is to consult with a periodontist or gum specialist. They will evaluate the severity of your gum condition and determine whether you are a suitable candidate for surgery.


Before the procedure, the periodontist will administer local anesthesia to numb the gums and surrounding tissues.


The periodontist will make incisions in the gums to access the underlying tissues. The incisions are made in a way that minimizes bleeding and pain.

Removal of diseased tissue

The periodontist will remove any diseased tissue, such as infected or damaged gum tissue, using special tools.


In some cases, the periodontist may need to graft tissue onto the gums to promote healing and restore the natural contour of the gum line.


The periodontist will then use sutures to close the incisions and promote healing. The sutures are usually removed within a week or two.
