Helping you to achieve a more healthy & attractive smile.
Your dentist has explained that periodontal disease is caused by plaque, a thin film of bacteria that builds up every day. Plaque clings to the teeth, spreading under the gums and over the roots of the teeth causing infections in the tissues and bone surrounding the teeth. If it is not treated, pockets form around the teeth and fill with infection. As the disease progresses, the tissues recede, affected teeth become loose and may eventually be lost.
As well as repairing the damage caused by periodontal disease, the procedures we perform help you achieve a more beautiful smile. Our soft tissue grafting techniques can correct and help prevent further recession to achieve a more attractive smile.
"Toothy" smiles result when the tissues recede. Either because of brushing too hard, periodontal disease, or other reasons. Our soft tissue grafting techniques can correct this condition and also help prevent further recession. For patients with "gummy" smiles where the tissues cover too much of the teeth, we can sculpt and reshape the gum line to reveal a more natural smile.
