You are definitely in good hands with Care Surrogacy center in Georgia! We are a couple from USA and we've been nothing but thrilled with them. We flew into their clinic in Batumi in June. Although, Amy (coordinator) couldn't be there she's arranged for car service to pick us up and take us to our hotel. Also, everything else was well arranged for the next day from lawyer to notary to clinic all very well organized. I have toured the whole clinic personally myself. It is very clean and modern. As a surgical nurse naturally I've inspected all the rooms and equipment. I was satisfied :) Mr. Evren, owner & the embryologist is very good at what he does. We had a positive pregnancy with our surrogate but recently lost it after 7 weeks. We are going to try again with the same surrogate. I should mention that we've been to India for surrogacy before Georgia and it was a nightmare! Dirty and bad conditions not to mention dishonesty and abuse of surrogates. Hope this helps on your decision making. Feel free to write if you have any other questions. Good luck to you! :)

Atlas is a fantastic IVF clinic, it is far exceeded our expectation as we came from Dubai to Batumi for this IVF treatment. We found this clinic only in website and contacted / communicated with them only by email. They are very reliable, transparent, team members are very friendly and helpful, specially Doctor Marina Surmanidze and the nurse Inga are amazing, which made us very comfortable for this treatment. Also we enjoyed so much in Batumi, it is a very nice place for holiday, very nice natural weather, food and fruits, the daily cost is very low, also the treatment cost about half price of Dubai as we tried 8 times IVF in Dubai. It is highly recommended for those patients who are seeking for IVF, Egg donor or Surrogacy to approach this clinic. Batumi has mountain and also has sea, fantastic experience.

What is Gum Flap Surgery?

Gum flap surgery is used to treat periodontal gum disease if the infection is beneath the gum line. Periodontal flap surgery reduces the depth of the pockets in which the gum intersects with supporting teeth to prevent bacterial build up and tooth decay.

 

Gum flap surgery is used to repair damaged teeth or rebuild bone if bone loss has occurred. Periodontists, who are dentists specializing in the area of gum disease, perform the procedure on an out-patient basis.

 

Periodontal surgeons must make an incision in the gum to lift back the gum tissue and separate the gums from the teeth and jawbone. This allows dentists to reach the underlying jawbone and tooth roots. Gum flap surgery is needed because of damage to the jawbone.

 

Minor bone defects can be repaired using a procedure called osseous re-contouring where the dentist evens out the edges of the bone. Re-contouring the jawbone will help the gum heal with no complications and can help regenerate bone growth.

 

If the bone has begun to rot or break away, parts of the jawbone may be removed and repaired with bone grafting during the gingival flap surgery. Once all decay and damaged bone has been removed, the gum flaps are reattached to the bone and tissue using dental sutures.

 

A Good Candidate for Gum Flap Surgery

Anyone who is suffering from periodontal gum disease, which is affecting the tissue and the stability of teeth in the jawbone, may be a good candidate for gum surgery. Dentists will recommend gum flap surgery if deep-root scale and polish cleaning is unable to remove all bacteria because the gum pockets are too deep.

 

Gum Flap Surgery Procedure

Periodontists make an incision in the gum to reveal the jawbone. Small holes are then made into the area of the jaw where the bone graft will be placed. The grafted bone is located into these holes, or if a large amount of bone grafting is needed, the grafted bone will be secured into the existing bone with titanium screws.

 

Bone marrow may be placed on top of the bone graft to stimulate healing before the incision is sealed. Periodontists place tissue membrane over the dental bone graft and seal the incision with dental sutures.

 

The length of the bone graft procedure depends on the amount of bone grafting needed. For some patients the procedure will be complete in 2 hours, for other patients it may take up to 5 hours to remove the bone from one area of the body and place the graft into the jaw.

 

Periodontal gum surgery may take between 1-4 hours to complete depending on the amount of damage revealed when the gum flap is lifted.
