There are many types of periodontal treatments for varying degrees of periodontal disease. While there are several non-surgical options available, there are certain circumstances in which Downtown Brooklyn periodontal surgery may be necessary. If you have periodontal disease, you be evaluated by a professional and knowledgeable periodontist, such as our expert, Michael L. Bolden, DDS to discuss the possibility of getting pocket reduction surgery.
Pocket reduction surgery is a common surgical procedure that is done to treat certain cases of advanced periodontal disease. If advanced periodontal disease is left untreated, it causes an accumulation of huge amounts of bacteria in the gum pockets. The bone and tissue that are supposed to fit snugly around the teeth to support them are destroyed from bacteria and form pockets. This can eventually result in the patient’s teeth falling out. Over time, as the disease progresses, the bacteria accumulate around the teeth and spreads under the gums. Over time, as the condition worsens, the pockets deepen and create a larger area for the bacteria to live in. The goal of Pocket Reduction Surgery is to stop this destructive cycle by reducing the pockets and eliminating the harmful bacteria. In order to determine if Pocket Reduction Surgery would be an appropriate treatment option for you, you would need to be evaluated by an expert Downtown Brooklyn periodontal surgery specialist, such as our expert, Michael L. Bolden, DDS. When you choose our practice, you’re in great hands. Dr. Bolden is an outstanding periodontist with a great deal of experience who takes the time to educate our patients.
