Periodontal Surgery

Periodontal Surgery in South Brunswick

Advanced or recurring periodontal disease may require surgical intervention to reduce the depth of the periodontal pockets and to improve the architecture of the underlying bone.  Once the pockets are reduced, the dental hygienist, as well as the patient, will be able to more effectively remove plaque from the now accessible root surfaces.  As with any periodontal treatment, it must be followed by regular dental check-ups and cleanings as well as meticulous home care.
