Gum Surgery & Bad Breath Treatment

Gum diseases are one of the most prevalent oral problems. Loose teeth, bad smell, generalised pain & sensitivity can occur due to gum problems. Cleaning of teeth, subgingival scaling & curettage and various flap surgeries are done to restore healthy gums.

Bone grafts are done for loose teeth to make it stronger. In our bad breath treatment we will give you oral hygiene instructions, brushing techniques, special mouthwashes and other health tips. The teeth may become loose or uncomfortable and the patient will require gum surgery. The only way to stop gum disease is to remove bacterial plaque and calculus (hardened plaque deposits) from all tooth surfaces - including from the roots

During the surgery. The surgeon folds the gums back to form a flap in order to access the tissue below the gums. The infected tissue below and between the teeth is removed, and the surgeon then follows with tooth scaling and root planing to remove plaque and bacteria below the gum line.

You should be fully healed from a gum graft in one to two weeks. You'll need to schedule a follow-up appointment with your periodontist a week or so after the procedure so that they can make sure you're healing properly and the graft is successful.
