What is Gum Surgery?
Gum surgery or periodontal treatment is a procedure done to control periodontal disease signs such as tooth loss, the gap between teeth, and bleeding gums. The surgery helps to stop progressive bone loss and regenerate lost bone where possible.
How much does it cost for gum surgery?
The gum surgery cost depends on the procedure done, the extent of the treated area, medications, anesthesia administered, surgeon’s fees, and the clinic's location. It is possible to calculate the total cost only after diagnosing the condition and determining the treatment procedure.
Why is Gum surgery performed?
Most people prefer to undergo gum surgery to prevent severe gum diseases like periodontitis, damaging the gum, teeth, and underline bones.
After undergoing flap surgery, patients must maintain good oral hygiene to sustain clean teeth and healthy gum.
Types of Gum Surgery
Periodontal surgery or flap surgery involves creating an incision in the gum to access the deep pockets and removing the tartar deposits. After the surgery, the surgeon stitches the gums back to fit around the teeth. In a few cases, patients may need reshaping the underlying bone.
Bone grafting is a replacement procedure for patients with a damaged tooth root and requires a new bone graft. The main aim of performing bone grafting is supporting the tooth and help it grow like any other teeth.
Guided tissue regeneration
The surgeon usually inserts a tiny mesh-like material between the gum tissue and the bone. This mesh-like material helps prevent extra growth of the gum where the bone is present. It supports the healthy development of the bones and connective tissues.
Tissue grafting involves using soft tissue grafts to heal gum line recession. The surgeon removes tissue from one part of the patient's mouth and transplants it to the damaged gum portion. This procedure protects the gum from further damage and covers the tooth roots.
Types of Tissues Grafting Techniques
1. Laser therapy
Some dentists use laser therapy to prevent root and gum damage by reducing the pocket's size and restore the connective tissues.
2. Tissue stimulating proteins
Dentists stimulate the gums by injecting a protein gel to strengthen the underlying bone and tissue growth.
How is Gum Surgery Performed?
Dental surgeons initially administer local or general anesthesia, depending on the severity of the condition.
First, the surgeons usually create a tiny incision along the gum line and lift the gum flap to reach the roots. Then they separate the infected bone or tissue and clean away the plaque.
After this step, the surgeon deep cleans the teeth and performs other procedures like gum reshaping, bone regeneration, or other methods.
After completing the gum flap surgery, the dental surgeon stitches the gum to achieve the best possible natural appearance.
The dentists typically remove these stitches after 7-10 days of the procedure.
Take all the prescribed medications correctly.
Apply ice on the face to bring down the swelling.
Eat soft food till the removal of stitches.
Rinse the mouth gently for the initial few days after surgery.
Avoid drinking alcohol or smoking at least for a month.
Sleep with head elevated till the swelling comes down.
Avoid vigorous exercise and lifting bulky objects for at least a month.
