My good friend had flap surgery, she had periodontal disease and in advanced stages when scaling and root planning has been unsuccessful in eliminating the entire pocket of decay, or when there has been bone loss that needs to be surgically corrected, then a dentist may perform periodontal flap surgery. It can be described as the loosening of the gum from bone to expose and clean underlying tooth structures.
