hello, the number of sittings required for the treatment depends on the extent of your problem,treatment procedure, the doctor and your comfort. pain and swelling can be controlled by intake of antibiotics and painkillers. usually, patients are able to get back to work the next day itself.

Hi, Please visit a periodontist or gum specialist after taking out a full mouth xray called OPG & he will tell you the treatment plan. If gum surgery is required he will maybe divide into two sittings as one side is upper right & other lower left .You can resume work immediately as he will prescribe medicines after surgery.Gum surgery is not a painful procedure.

As you said the periodontal problem is in two quadrant i.e. Upper right and lower left side.  It will at least take two appointments,  though clinical and radiographic investigation by a dentist is required to plan exact treatment.  Usually there is no need to take off from office next day. Dentist will give you instructions and required medicine to minimize your post operative discomfort.
