I went to dentist yesterday for cleaning, doctor examined and told that I have periodontitis and they took opg, they said there is bone loss and tooth has also shifted. They said they will be doing flap surgery and laser as well as bone grafting. But I want to confirm again, can you please tell me what to do? I have opg too.

Hi. Yes for bone loss periodontal surgery is required.
Yes this is the treatment modality for periodontitis with bone loss. flap surgery and laser will definitely help to improve the condition.
