Surgery

In Advanced Periodontitis where non-surgical therapy has been unsuccessful in arresting the disease, surgery may help.

Clinical studies show that in severe cases surgery, in association with a regular maintenance care programme surgery can prevent tooth loss in up to 85% of patients.

There are a variety of surgical techniques used and Dr McElhinney will discuss these with you in detail. Surgical procedures that Dr Gerrardine McElhinney performs include:

  • Connective Tissue Graft
  • Flap Surgery
  • Crown Lengthening
  • Frenectomy
  • Surgical exposure of unerupted teeth
