 srp vs flap surgery

can srp along w/arestin, periostat or atridox treatment work successfully if
some pockets are 6mm or is flap surgery the only treatment that will be
successful in this case?

If the pockets are stable and don't exhibit inflammation after thorough
scaling and root planing, regardless of pocket depth, I'd say the treatment
was successful.  So many variables are present that you simply have to try
it and see...which is logical because in some patients it will eliminate or
lessen the need for surgery, and in some it won't.  Surgery ain't cheap,
either.

Whatever works is what is successful, and since good SC&RP generally
precedes surgery, you can gauge the success for that individual.  Surgery is
generally reserves for "cases" that don't respond favorably to more
conservative treatment.

can this procedure get way down into 6 mm pockets?  would 6mm pockets be too
deep for srp?  would this depth pocket,  in a few places,  respond better to
arestin, periostat, or atridox?
