The etiological treatment consists of removing plaque and tartar by learning specific oral hygiene techniques, scaling and root planing.
Surgical treatment is only used in the most severe cases and consists of making flaps to have direct access to the lesions and in some cases to fill in these lesions.
Once the disease is stabilized, it is imperative to set up a regular follow-up, a prophylaxis (every 3 to 6 months) to avoid recurrences.
Once the periodontal diseases are controlled and stabilized, we may have to perform a muco-gingival surgery.
The gum can present local or extensive retractions, called gingival recessions. These recessions can lead to dental sensitivities and aesthetic problems.
It is possible to perform gum grafts that will allow the reconstruction of the lost gum totally or partially depending on the extent of the initial lesion. If the lesion cannot be completely regenerated, the graft will prevent it from getting worse and will strengthen the operated area.
The graft will be taken from the palate. Today, surgical techniques have evolved considerably: they are micro-invasive and cause very limited postoperative discomfort.
In addition, for more comfort, a protection of the sampling area will be put in place during the few days following the intervention.
