What Is Periodontal Surgery?

Periodontal surgery is usually required in more severe cases of periodontal disease. Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease involves a bacterial infection that affects the gums and the bone that supports the teeth. Periodontal disease is usually caused by a buildup of bacteria in the mouth, which can form a sticky film called plaque on the teeth and gums. The main goals of periodontal surgery are:

  • ​To remove the built-up bacteria that are causing the infection.

  • To restore the health of the gums and the supporting bone.

When Is Periodontal Surgery Needed?

Periodontal surgery is necessary when periodontal disease has reached an advanced stage. Some common signs of periodontal disease are:

  • Receding gums

  • Bad breath

  • Bleeding gums

  • Gum pain

  • Tooth loss

  • Bone loss

  • Jaw pain

Periodontal disease can be controlled if spotted on time. This is why dental examinations are necessary. However, in some scenarios, surgery might be the only option to preserve oral health. Please contact us if you'd like to know more about our periodontal surgery in Kamloops.

Who’s a Good Candidate?

Periodontal surgery is recommended if you experience symptoms that cannot be treated with less invasive measures. Such symptoms may include:

  • Periodontal pockets that are deeper than 5mm.

  • Bone loss around the teeth, resulting in tooth mobility or even tooth loss.

  • Gum recession that leads to the tooth roots becoming exposed.


Before performing periodontal surgery, local anesthesia or sedation may be used depending on the case's complexity and your needs. Next, the dentist will remove the infected tissue and repair the damage caused. This can be done using techniques such as flap surgery, bone grafting, and guided tissue regeneration.
