Pocket Reduction Surgery
As periodontists, we love to see healthy gums attached to strong bones and teeth.
After periodontal scaling and root planing, pocket reduction surgery is your next line of defense to treat and prevent gum disease.
Pocket reduction surgery helps you to maintain clean, healthy gums and teeth by reducing the “pockets” where bacteria can hide.
We remove diseased gum tissue, plaque or tartar. In some cases, we will even smooth irregular, infected bone surfaces to ensure the gums attach to clean, healthy surfaces.
