Proactive Perio’s periodontist can explain the goal and technique of each procedure at your consultation.
In most cases, these surgeries are completed under local anaesthetic in the practice chair. For more complex cases or, if requested, we can perform the surgery under a general anaesthetic in the practice rooms or hospital.
These surgeries are minor surgical procedures that are likely to result in some localised pain and discomfort which can be managed by pain medication. Most patients can proceed with everyday life and often back at work by the next day and continue normal life throughout the months in between specialist appointments.
