For a more gruesome picture of what they actually do, copy and past this: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://bp3.blogger.com/_Ni-dKS6hvs4/RjwkQof3ERI/AAAAAAAAAek/pJUUtplfrA4/s400/2nd%2Bmolars.png&imgrefurl=http://ajouimplant.blogspot.com/2007/05/periodontal-surgery-for-severely.html&usg=__X4gJFO-Zf35BwNqwije0dSa4MeY=&h=288&w=400&sz=202&hl=en&start=33&um=1&tbnid=AD4aKUlyT00dKM:&tbnh=89&tbnw=124&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dperiodontal%2Bpouch%26start%3D21%26ndsp%3D21%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dactive%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DN

(mine won't be this bad, it's alot simpler than this and they will graft tissue from the roof of my mouth, actually this is a whole different surgery, but the closest I could find to a "pouch" - which is where the make a little pouch for the graft, shove it in the hole and sew up until it heals!)
