At Excel Dental we specialize in a wide variety of procedures designed to maintain or improve your periodontal tissues. The periodontal (gum) tissues are an important part of your oral health. Our experience and expertise in periodontal care allows us to provide high-quality treatments you cannot find anywhere else!
If we diagnosis you with periodontal disease, you may need a deep cleaning (scaling and root planing). Also known as a scaling and root planing, this procedure is designed to eliminate large deposits of plaque and tartar. After your deep cleaning, your gums should return to a healthy, pink state.
A frenectomy is a minor surgical procedure that involves the removal of the lingual or labial frenum. We may recommend a frenectomy to improve the mobility of your tongue and allow for proper speech (removal of lingual frenum). Removing the labial frenum may be necessary to close the gap between the two front teeth.
Some people are born with uneven gums or an excessive amount of gum tissue. This can create aesthetic issues with your smile. We may recommend gingival contouring to improve the balance between your teeth and gums, giving you a more beautiful smile!
Gum Graft Surgery
Gum graft surgery may be the best way to address severe gum recession. Gum recession can be the result of periodontal disease, aging, trauma, over-brushing, and misaligned teeth. Gum recession can result in substantial sensitivity issues, pain, and poor smile aesthetics.
Soft Tissue Grafting
Soft tissue grafting is also used to combat gum recession. The three most common types of soft tissue grafts include free gingival grafts, connective tissue grafts, and pedicle grafts. The type of soft tissue graft you need depends on the severity and location of your gum recession.
