In certain situations non-surgical gum disease treatment is not entirely successful in preventing the destructive advances of periodontal disease. In such situations in which it is impossible to completely disinfect the pockets or infected crevices between the gum and the tooth, and where even the most rigorous personal oral hygiene procedures are insufficient to adequately eliminate the disease associated bacteria, periodontal surgery, sometimes known as pocket elimination, may be necessary to reverse the process. The benefits of these surgical procedures are that they are designed to eliminate infected pockets, and to restore or stimulate the natural regeneration of diseased tissues. Dr. Brown, in consultation with you and your family dentist, will assist you to decide on the best course of action.
