Common gum treatments include:
- Crown lengthening – to correct a “gummy” smile and remove excess gum tissue, and to give you a fuller, more attractive smile.
- Gum grafts – to restore the gum tissue and symmetry of the gum line.
- Pocket reduction surgery – to clean the root surfaces of the teeth and help restore health to the gums and bone.
Common jawbone treatments include:
- Sinus augmentation – to slightly elevate the sinus floor and provide sufficient supporting bone for implants.
- Ridge modification – to treat deformities in the jawbone that will improve your appearance and allow implants to be successfully placed.
- Bone grafts – to thicken the jawbone so that implants can be placed, fill craters or deformities in the jawbone, or help to successfully reposition nerves.
