Hi everyone,

My last trip to the dentist resulted in a discussion of flap surgery for periodontitis. I'm a little nervous about scheduling it because after a lot of googling (I know, I know) and research I struggled to understand, I'm worried about recovery from having incisions inside my mouth. I'm in my 30s and I just don't heal as fast as I used to.
I sort of inadvertently came across the concept of "soft-brushing" (https://www.pstshop.com/dr-choukroun-soft-brushing-kit/) for this type of surgery but I was confused about how that works. If my dentist uses this method or tools like this, do they still have to make an incision? Or does using a soft-brushing technique just reduce the inflammation and recovery from work done post-incision?

Like everyone, I guess I'm just trying to figure out the most painless way to take care of the problem.

Any reassurances or explanations in layman's terms would be greatly appreciated!
