Gum Grafting

When faced with gum recession caused by periodontal (gum) disease, it is important to conceal sensitive areas of your tooth structure (i.e., the tooth root). With gum grafting, we can improve your oral health by removing tissue from the roof of your mouth and using it to cover the exposed areas. This will help to offer better protection against sensitivity, decay, and damage, and it helps to improve the look of your overall smile.

Bone Grafting

If bone loss is a concern that is keeping you from moving forward with dental implant surgery, our periodontists can easily remedy the problem with bone grafting. By placing grafting materials from another part of your mouth or a donor, the two will integrate to create a solid foundation that offers maximum stability and support for your future smile.

Sinus Lifts

When dental implants need to be placed in the upper arch, toward the back of the mouth, the sinus cavity can be a tricky area to navigate. Fortunately, with a sinus lift, we can perform a similar procedure to a bone graft except, we will lift the sinuses to insert grafting materials that will create a firm foundation for your dental implants to integrate with and adequately support your new teeth.

Crown Lengthening

Gummy smiles can be just as bothersome as chipped or stained teeth. And when you learn you need restorative care but lack the necessary tooth structure to have it completed, you may wonder if there are any viable solutions available. There is with crown lengthening.

Ridge Augmentation

This unique process involves rebuilding the alveolar ridge, which is the bone that supports your teeth. After losing or extracting a tooth, this part of the facial structure can deteriorate quickly, resulting in resorption that can negatively impact your facial shape and nearby healthy teeth. With ridge augmentation, though, we can add bone grafting material to the socket before placing gum tissue over the area for proper healing before undergoing dental implant surgery.

Lip and tongue ties are common occurrences, especially among infants and children. Known as frenulums, these banded tissues located behind the upper lip and underneath the tongue can be restricted, resulting in a minimal range of motion for the lip or tongue. To release these tissues and improve oral function, we can perform a frenectomy. This procedure not only allows for an improved latch for nursing infants but also improves speech quality and sleep-breathing patterns for children and adolescents.
