Gum surgery, also known as periodontal surgery, is a dental procedure performed to treat advanced gum disease or address specific gum-related issues that cannot be resolved with non-surgical treatments. Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a condition characterized by inflammation and infection of the gums and supporting structures around the teeth.

The need for gum surgery may arise when gum disease reaches an advanced stage, leading to deep pockets and bone loss around the teeth. It can also be necessary to correct gum problems, such as gum recession, excessive gum tissue, or to enhance the appearance of the gumline.


There are different types of gum surgeries, including:

  1. Gingival Flap Surgery: This procedure involves lifting back the gum tissue to access and clean deep periodontal pockets, removing bacteria, tartar, and infected tissue. The gums are then repositioned and sutured back in place to promote healing.
  2. Gum Graft Surgery: Gum grafting is performed to address gum recession, where the gum tissue has pulled back, exposing the tooth root. During the procedure, gum tissue is taken from another area of the mouth or a tissue bank and transplanted to cover the exposed root, restoring a healthy gumline.
  3. Crown Lengthening: Crown lengthening involves removing excess gum tissue or bone to expose more of the tooth’s crown. It is done when a tooth is partially covered by the gums, hindering restorative procedures like dental crowns or fillings.
  4. Periodontal Regeneration: This surgical technique aims to regenerate lost bone and tissue due to gum disease. It involves using bone grafts, membranes, or growth factors to stimulate the regrowth of supporting structures around the teeth.


Gum surgery is typically performed by a periodontist, a dental specialist with expertise in treating gum-related conditions. The procedure is usually carried out under local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort.
