Periodontal flap surgery and dental implants- the fundamentals

Periodontal disease is the progressive loss of bone around teeth. If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss. Periodontal flap surgery is one of the many options available for periodontal treatment if the initial therapy (called scaling and root planing) does not resolve the problem.

Dental implants are provided as a treatment option for situations where the teeth have already been lost. They consist of a titanium screw (which is placed easily into the bone), and a crown which is then placed over it. The final result is a almost- natural looking and functioning tooth.
