Periodontal Plastic Surgery
We offer a number of periodontal plastic surgical procedures to strengthen gum tissue that is thin or weak, as well as enhance the cosmetic appearance of the soft tissues. These procedures serve to help maintain teeth, treat sensitivity, or improve the esthetics of your smile.
Autogenous Gingival Graft
This treatment involves the utilization of a small piece of tissue removed from the roof of the mouth and placed in an area of extremely weak, thin tissue to prevent further recession.
Connective Tissue Graft
Connective tissue grafts can be used to treat the undesirable “long tooth” appearance. By reattaching the gum to the previously exposed root surface, we can improve esthetics and reduce or eliminate sensitivity caused by receding gums. Root coverage can be achieved by using the patient’s own tissue, donor tissue, or the Chao Pinhole Technique®.
Esthetic Crown Lengthening
An excessive display of gum tissue, also called “gummy smile” can be corrected by altering the level of the gum line with an esthetic crown lengthening procedure. This technique is also utilized to eliminate unsightly uneven gum levels on adjacent teeth.
