Is Periodontal Pocket Microsurgery Painful?

Periodontal Pocket Microsurgery, just like any other dental surgery, can be associated with discomfort. However, our patients can be assured that with modern sedation services, they would be able to tolerate gum disease treatment with minimal pain. Patients will experience slight pressure, tingling sensations, or numbness at the site of the procedure but should not experience significant pain.

Some patients may require pain medication after the surgery to control the discomfort they experience. In any case, it is essential to follow the post-operative instructions given by our periodontist Matt, and his team to maintain good oral hygiene to promote a successful healing process.

How long does Periodontal Pocket Microsurgery last?

The duration of Periodontal Pocket Microsurgery typically depends on the severity and extent of the gum disease. In most cases, gum disease treatment can take between 1-2 hours. However, it’s important to note that this treatment is not a one-time fix, and patients may need to undergo regular dental check-ups and maintenance procedures to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment.

With proper post-operative care and good oral hygiene habits, the benefits of Periodontal Pocket Microsurgery can last for many years, reducing the risk of gum infection, tooth loss, and other oral health problems.
