Dr. Korn performs pocket reduction microsurgery with local anesthesia and always under high magnification in a “minimally invasive” manner. This treatment is one step above scaling and root planing in the treatment spectrum. While periodontist perform scaling and root planing blindly, using instruments to feel for clean roots, pocket reduction microsurgery is performed with just enough visibility to remove infection and ensure that roots are visibly clean. Healthy gum tissue is never removed as a result of this surgery.
