Pocket Reduction Surgery

In cases of advanced gum disease and/or excessive tissue, sometimes even the most stringent dental cleanings aren’t able to remove all of the bacteria affecting the gum. In these instances, a surgical procedure known as pocket reduction surgery may be required. This procedure provides access to those areas that are unreachable by regular scaling and root planing and includes careful reshaping of the supporting tissues.  The final result includes the elimination of deep gum pockets and is easier to clean for the maintenance of good oral hygiene.
