What is Gum Surgery?

Gum surgery is a surgical procedure to treat periodontal gum diseases. There are two types of gum surgery. The flap surgery involves making a flap like opening in the gum and cleaning plaque from deep periodontal pockets. Gum grafting surgery is performed when the patient has insufficient gum tissue. Gum surgery takes about 60 to 90 minutes.  

Is Gum Surgery painful?

Gum surgery is performed after administering local anaesthesia. Patients should not feel any pain during the surgery.

Patients should travel by air up to two days after gum surgery. They should get certification from their doctor as fit for travel by air before embarking on their journey.

Dr Johan Hartshorne

087 550 5466 Intercare Medical and Dental Centre, 43 Old Oak Road, Tyger Valley, 7536
Rating from 22 Reviews I can not believe how brilliant Dr Hartshorne isLelethu, South Africa, 01 Dec 16

I went to him for just a consultation and in just 2 days I had already started treatment. I was a bit shy and embarrassed because the work that needed to be done on my teeth was extensive but both him and his team made me feel so calm and comfortable. I am so happy I went to him, he is very knowledgeable and gave me the most information than I ever got on my teeth. Most importantly he is kind. I would recommend him to anyone.

Rating from 5 Reviews Everything was perfectly explained, you can trust this clinicEthne, South Africa, 23 Dec 16

I came to the clinic as they were able to offer me the best price for the treatment I was looking for. The clinic itself is beautiful, professional, clean and comfortable. I absolutely got good value from my treatment here, there were additional add ons to the prices, but I was made fully aware of all of these and was happy to pay. I've booked a follow up appointment in the new year. Everything was perfectly explained, you can trust this clinic.

Kromboom Dental Centre

3 Burwood Road, Rondebosch East, Cape Town, 7780
Rating from 14 Reviews Should have costed thousands, but it didn'tNaomi, South Africa, 10 Dec 15

Root canal and others. Lets just put it this way, gentle, patient, thorough. They won't continue working on you until they are 100% sure that you are ok to proceed. Should have costed thousands, but it didn't. You have to go for yourself to experience these peoples caring nature. I was referred to the clinic by my colleague, after my daughter had an awful dental experience at the hands of a dental surgeon who clearly was only out to make as much money as he possibly could. She suffered unbearably for months with pain and infections (3 to 4 visits to same dentist and thousands of rands later) after a "root canal" which this dentist supposedly did (but found out later he didn't). I eventually took her to Kromboom dental clinic. Wow! from the moment you walk into the door you are made to feel at ease. These people actually care about their patients - even though it's called a clinic, there is nothing "coldly clinical" about them. They are not just knowledgeable and super efficient, they are also kind and friendly. Dr Nazier Natha - kudos to you sir. You have changed my opinion of dentists. You have gone above and beyond to help Amy. she is now pain free and has no problems. Thank you, thank you, thank you and God bless you. Warm regards Naomi
