Gingivectomy

A gingivectomy is a soft tissue treatment used to remove infected gum tissue from around your teeth. When your gums become infected from periodontal disease, they begin to pull away from the teeth, exposing the tooth roots to damage and potentially spreading infection to other parts of your mouth or body. Gingivectomies are performed to remove the infected gum tissue and leave behind healthy gums that can reattach to the teeth successfully.

Frenectomy

A frenectomy is a very common treatment that is often performed on children, but many teens and adults can benefit as well. Some people may have a tongue- or lip-tie, which is a thin muscle called the frenum that restricts the movement of these soft tissues. Frenectomies are the gentle severing of this restrictive muscle so that you will be able to have proper movement and function with your lips or tongue. Often painless and quick, a frenectomy can improve both the aesthetics and function of a patient’s smile, allowing for improved speech, breathing and even eating.

Gum Grafting

When your gums have been damaged or suffer from recession, they expose your sensitive tooth roots to damage or decay. Gum grafting is a process that takes a sample of gum tissue from you or another source and places it over the site of recession. This graft will then be sutured to your existing gums and heal to a seamless, healthy and attractive result. We often utilize plasma rich growth factors to promote improved healing. After your gums have successfully healed, you’ll see a healthy, even gumline for years to come.
