Long term oral health problems and poor oral hygiene habits can place your gums at increased risk of periodontal disease. Also known as gum disease the inflammation and infection in the periodontal tissues can cause your teeth to recede from the base of your teeth.
As this starts to happen small pockets of infection can develop near the roots of your teeth. In time, this severe periodontal infection can cause the loss of multiple teeth.
One possible treatment method to treat a problem of this magnitude is to have Dr. Farshid Ariz perform a gingival flap treatment. This can be done on outpatient basis and usually requires deep sedation. Afterward you will need to have someone drive you home while the sedative effect gradually dissipates.
The treatment process starts with Dr. Farshid Ariz making small incisions in your gums. This exposes the infected material for removal. Once this is done Dr. Farshid Ariz will adapt the healthy periodontal tissues over the base of your teeth.
Dr. Farshid Ariz will likely prescribe antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, and pain management medication to knock out any lingering infection and help you remain comfortable while your gums heal.
