Periodontal Surgery/Open-Flap Debridement

The purpose of the typical dental cleaning is to remove plaque and tartar (mineralized plaque) that has formed around teeth, which when not removed can cause periodontal disease, infection, and tooth or bone loss. When the inflammation of the gums or the accumulation of tartar has progressed to such a severe state that a typical dental cleaning cannot remove all of the infected areas, periodontal surgery under local anesthesia may be required for further help to promote healthy healing.
