Flappy gum that wont heal
your best option is to see a Periodontist or an oral surgeon especially if your dentist is suggesting it / and she wants to redo the surgery by cutting .....
Sometimes there are scars that develop and this could be easily trimmed. If the gum is completely open , then infection should be ruled out. Site cleaned up after the gum is flapoed open. Then it will be re sutured.
The cause of this flappy gum healing should be diagnosed first before the site is cut opened again .....
in your area,
are great periodontists
