Flap Surgery

Flap surgeries refer to loosening of the gum from the bone to expose & clean the underlying tooth structures.

In advanced gum diseases, when cleaning and polishing fail to eliminate the pocket of the decayed tooth, it needs to be corrected surgically.

Post-flap surgery, Patients can return to their daily work immediately if the swelling of the gums is not painful.
Gum surgeries Mumbai can also be performed in many cases for esthetic purposes.

Periodontal Diseases

Periodontitis or periodontal disease is a disease in which the tissue anchoring the teeth to the underlying bone is chronically inflamed. Eventually, the bone that supports the teeth starts deteriorating. It leads to bone damage, loosen teeth, and after some time, fall out or may have to be extracted. Periodontitis usually follows if gingivitis is left untreated.

Types of Periodontal Disease


Gingivitis is the earliest stage and affects only the gum tissue. At this stage, the disease is still reversible. If not treated, however, it may lead to a more severe condition.


Periodontitis is a more advanced stage of periodontal diseases. The gums, bone and other structures that support the teeth become damaged. Teeth can become loose and fall out – or may have to be removed. At this stage, the disease may require more complex treatment to prevent tooth loss.

Advanced Periodontitis

Advanced Periodontitis is present when the teeth lose more attachment because the supporting bone is destroyed.
