Bone grafting is a regenerative dental procedure aimed at restoring lost bone tissue in the jaw. It involves transplanting bone material to the affected area, stimulating new bone growth, and creating a stable foundation for dental implants. This treatment benefits individuals with insufficient bone density due to periodontal disease, tooth loss, or facial trauma. Bone grafting enhances the success of dental implants, enabling patients to achieve a healthy smile.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is a dental procedure designed to expose more of the tooth structure by removing excess gum tissue and, if necessary, bone. Primarily a functional and cosmetic treatment, it helps address issues like a “gummy smile,” tooth decay below the gum line, or insufficient tooth structure for restorations. Crown lengthening is ideal for patients seeking improved oral aesthetics or requiring dental crowns or veneers to ensure a strong and visually pleasing outcome.

Gingivectomy (Gum Recontouring)

Gingivectomy, also known as gum recontouring, is a surgical procedure to remove excess gum tissue. It aims to reshape and restructure the gums for functional and aesthetic purposes. The treatment is recommended for patients with overgrown or uneven gums, often causing a “gummy smile” or difficulties maintaining oral hygiene. By carefully trimming and reshaping the gums, gingivectomy enhances the appearance of the teeth, ensures proper gum health, and creates a harmonious smile.

Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is a surgical procedure that involves taking gum tissue from one area of the mouth and transplanting it to another, typically to cover exposed tooth roots. The treatment addresses issues like gum recession caused by periodontal disease, aggressive tooth brushing, or natural thinning of the gum tissue. Gum grafting helps reduce tooth sensitivity, improve gum health, prevent further gum recession, and enhance the overall aesthetics of the smile.

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift is a dental procedure that adds bone to the upper jaw in the area of the molars and premolars. The treatment increases bone height and creates a stable foundation for dental implants. It is recommended for individuals who have experienced bone loss in the upper jaw due to tooth loss or other factors and who desire dental implants but lack sufficient bone mass in the sinus area. Sinus lift enables successful implant placement.

Additional Periodontal Surgeries:

  • Block Grafts: Transplanting a block of bone from one area of the body to the jaw to augment bone volume for implant support.
  • Connective Tissue Grafting: Using tissue from the roof of the mouth to cover exposed tooth roots or augment gum tissue for aesthetic and functional purposes.
  • Guided Bone Regeneration: Using a barrier membrane to promote new bone growth in areas with insufficient bone for implant placement.
  • Guided Tissue Regeneration: Using a barrier membrane to facilitate the growth of specific tissues, aiding in periodontal repair and regeneration.
  • Ridge Augmentation: Restoring the natural contour of the jaw by adding bone or bone substitutes to areas with bone loss.
  • Scaling & Root Planing: Deep cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from beneath the gum line and smooth the tooth roots to prevent bacterial growth and improve gum health.
