Some of the periodontal surgical procedures which our dentists may recommend include:
- Crown Lengthening – This gum treatment works to remove excessive gum tissue and even out the gum line to give you a healthier and more attractive appearance. It may be performed for functional or aesthetic purposes.
- Gingivectomy – Also known as pocket reduction or flap surgery, this treatment works to remove bacteria and calculus from the roots of the teeth. It also reduces the periodontal pockets near the teeth to prevent harmful bacteria from recolonizing in the area.
- Gum Grafting – Gum grafting, or soft tissue grafting, is usually recommended when the gums have receded due to periodontal disease or overaggressive brushing. It works by replacing the receded gum tissue to give you back healthy gums in the affected areas of your mouth.
