I recently had a root canal (first time having one). My dentist tells me that I need to have periodontal surgery because the gum has totally detached from the tooth where I had the root canal (front right top tooth). He said that the periodontist will probably have to graft some skin from the roof of my mouth. This sounds very painful. Can you tell me the procedure of this surgery and how long it would take. thanks!
