Crown lengthening is the process of reshaping the gum and bone structure around a single tooth or multiple teeth to expose more of the tooth structure. Crown lengthening is performed using a local anesthetic by our dentist.
Pocket Reduction Surgery
This is a procedure in which the gums are pulled gently away from the teeth to eliminate bacteria and tartar. Scaling and root planing will also be performed to fully remove the tartar from the tooth root’s surface to ensure that the gums reattach to the tooth.
A gum graft is an umbrella term for a surgical gum procedure that covers an exposed tooth root with grafted oral tissue to create new, healthy gums. There are two main types of gum grafts: free gingival grafts and connective tissue grafts. Our dentist will work with you to determine which procedure is best for you.
