At Palmetto Periodontics, located in Columbia, SC, we specialize in advanced periodontal surgery to treat various stages of gum disease and enhance oral health. Our practice is dedicated to providing precise, effective treatments with a focus on patient comfort and long-term dental wellness.

Understanding Periodontal Surgery

Periodontal surgery involves various procedures designed to access and remove diseased tissue, reduce pocket depth, and restore gum and bone tissue around the teeth. It is typically recommended for patients who have not responded adequately to more conservative treatments, such as scaling and root planing.

Benefits of Periodontal Surgery

  • Improved Gum Health: Surgery aims to halt the progression of periodontal disease.
  • Reduced Pocket Depth: Helps manage periodontal disease and prevents the accumulation of harmful bacteria.
  • Enhanced Tooth Stability: Addresses bone loss and helps prevent tooth loss.
  • Cosmetic Improvements: Can reshape the gums to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
