Why Gum Surgery?

Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease and can be treated by our simple dentists. However, if you have periodontitis then it can lead to inflammation and damage to bones and tissues. In this case, our dentists will recommend you to our periodontist and the treatment may involve gum surgery.
These surgeries can regrow affected bones and tissues, prevent tooth loss, and reduce gaps between the gums. However, gum disease is not the only reason why people choose this surgery. Some of our patients choose it for cosmetic reasons too.
If your gums cover too much of your teeth then you can opt to come to our dental facility to get rid of the gummy smile and get yourself a picture-perfect smile.

The Treatments We Offer

With one of the best dental facilities in Australia, you can expect good hygiene and careful approach from our periodontist. Our periodontist will:
Thoroughly clean your teeth and apply local anesthesia to numb the area. If you require a deep cleaning beneath the surface of the gums then our periodontist will make a small incision along the gum line and lift the gums away from the teeth to clean the deeper layer of the gums. It will help them to remove any hidden tartar, plaque, or infected tissues.
After this, our dentist will perform the specific procedure and stitch your gums back in place.
Our periodontist will give you thorough information about how you can prepare for the surgery and how long it will take to complete the surgery.
With us, you can expect a safe surgery for your gum. However, surgeries do have their risks but our dentists will take utmost care during the procedure to avoid any complications.

How To Recover From Surgery

You will not follow the prescribed diet, physical activities, and medications to start the recovery process and make sure you don’t floss the gum line that was repaired for some time. our doctors of Dentist sunshine will prescribe you with an antiseptic mouthwash to avoid any infection.
You will also be prescribed some antibiotics by our surgeons and will be instructed to eat soft food in the initial days of surgeries. While it may take a week or two for your mouth to fully heal, you will be able to return to work on the very next day.
