Both teeth and implants are best maintained when they are in healthy gum tissues. In the past, poor gums were considered untreatable and were blamed as the cause for the failure of complicated dental restorations.
Today, our doctors utilize the most advanced techniques to reconstruct the periodontal and gingival tissues. These techniques are both functional (improve cleanability and reduce sensitivity of exposed roots) and cosmetic (allow for natural appearing restorations with good shape and color).
Periodontal plastic and reconstructive surgery may involve procedures as simple as the minor recontouring of your gums or as complex as multi-staged grafting operations. Our doctors will be glad to discuss your individual needs with you.
These surgeries are performed at our in-office surgical suite under I.V. sedation or general anesthesia. After discharge, bed rest is recommended for one day and limited physical activity for one week.
