Advanced Care for Advanced Cases
Patients facing advanced-stage gum disease may require specialized treatments. One of these advanced procedures is gum flap surgery, where the gum is gently lifted to access and cleanse the root surface of the teeth. After thorough cleaning, the gum is carefully stitched back in place, preventing further infection.
In instances of severe gum or bone damage, patients may require gum tissue or bone grafts. These grafts promote the growth of healthy tissues, restoring the damaged areas. At Jaffe Dental Group, we prioritize comprehensive discussions with our patients, ensuring they are fully informed about all available treatment options. It is essential to understand that the effectiveness of any gum disease treatment is closely tied to the patient’s commitment to improving their oral hygiene practices. With dedicated care and active patient involvement, we strive for successful outcomes in even the most advanced cases of gum disease.
