Pocket Reduction Surgery

When periodontal disease is extensive and destruction of the underlying bone and supporting tissues is involved, it is may be necessary to treat the disease through surgical access. The goals of this procedure are:
- to gain access below the gingiva for a thorough cleaning
- to reposition the gingiva to allow for long term maintenance and health
- to correct the anatomy and promote periodontal health
- to control the progression of destructive periodontal disease
