    Default Periodontal Flap Surgery (Gum Flap Surgery)

    Has anyone experienced this (yet)? I'm half way thru. My periodonist ( a woman) performed this surgery on my bottom right side of my mouth 2 Saturdays ago. And, did the upper right this past Saturday.

    Next month we do the lower and upper left, in that order.

    I get stitches and antibotics after every visit. The prior week's stitches are taken out prior to new work. This Saturday I just pop in to get stitches removed.

    My mouth was more sore after the first visit as opposed to the second. Maybe cause I know the procedure and what to expect. Needless to say I get shot up with novocaine prior to the procedure.


    ************************************************** *******
    Periodontal Flap Surgery, which is also called pocket depth reduction, your periodontist folds the gum back away from the tooth. Periodontal Flap surgery is recommended in many cases where pocketing depths have reached a level that makes maintenance or cleansing difficult. It is often associated with areas of bone loss and inflammation of the gum tissue around the teeth.

    When scaling and root planing have been unsuccessful in eliminating the entire pocket of decay, or when there has been bone loss that needs to be surgically corrected, then a dentist may perform periodontal flap surgery. In flap surgery, under local anesthesia, small incisions are made in the gum, so that it can be lifted back to expose the tooth and bone. The entire area is carefully cleaned and all tarter and infected granulation tissue are removed and the bone is examined. Because periodontal disease causes bone loss, often the bone will need to be re-contoured in order for the gum to heal properly.

    After scraping away the bacteria-laden plaque and tartar, the dentist removes diseased tissue and smoothes the surface of damaged bones. Then the dentist sews the tissue back into place. Removing or smoothing damaged tissue allows the gum tissue to better reattach to healthy bone.

    I had some scaling work done last year where some of the gum is cut away. I think that's similar but not as serious to what you're having done. It was sore for over a week and just a miserable experience. I still have two more sections to be doen but have been dragging my feet on it.

    Yeah no hurry for that. Ouch!

    I've had that scaling stuff done but not surgery like that. And now that I've read about it, not sure if I would even if I needed it.

    I'm kidding of course.

    I realize it's not a pleasant thing to go thru. But, my advice to anyone who needs it is to go ahead and do it. It'll be beneficial to you in later life.

    How have the surgeries been going so far? Is it going as planned or could be expected?

    I've been using a sonicare toothbrush for a few years now and love it. What do you think of it so far?
