The dentist may encounter different types of complication during the surgical procedures either intraoperative or post operatively. Of these complications, the most common is postoperative hemorrhage. The hemorrhage can be classified into primary, intermediate and secondary hemorrhage. Normally after periodontal flap surgery, the bleeding will stop post operatively which is stopped by primary wound closure.
