The author discusses his approach to the treatment of a periodontal disease referred to as pyorrhea or suppurative gingivitis. He advocates a surgical method which involves lifting up a flap of gingival tissue to access the infected regions freely. Some criticisms of this method are alluded to, and arguments in support of it are provided.
