What materials are used in Surgical Periodontal Therapy?


Preston Dental Saskatoon Dental Clinic Services
  • Anesthetic (numbing medication) and stitches are used for most surgical procedures.
  • To build back gum and bone, donor tissue is required. This gum or bone tissue may come from another part of the patient’s own body, or from a donor person or animal – all donor graft material is sterilized for safety.
  • Antibiotics and mouth rinses are often used after surgery during the healing period.
