In most cases, these periodontal surgeries are completed under local anaesthetic in the practice chair at Proactive Perio Brisbane or Sunshine Coast. For more complex cases or, if requested, our periodontal surgeons can perform the surgery under a general anaesthetic in the practice rooms or hospital.
