It is possible to have healthier gums with flap operations.
It is not possible to create a completely bacteria-free environment in the mouth. But it is possible to keep it under control. With the developments of bacteria under the gums, infections mey occur in the gums create problems in both health and aesthetics. However, these infections can be easily treated with flap operations.
Flap Operation is a surgical procedure and in cases that cannot be cured by closed root surface treatment, 6-7 mm pockets are opened in the gums and the bacterial formed under these pockets like tartar and biofilms are cleaned under local anesthesia. The gingiva, which is lifted gently, is cleaned and sewn into new places with fine stitches.
