Frenectomy Before & After
Frenectomy is an oral surgical procedure that eliminates the presence of a frenum in the mouth. A frenum is a soft tissue attachment between two tissues found inside of the cheeks and lips and inside the mouth and gums. High frenum attachments can result in shifting of teeth and gum recession. The second picture shows results of laser-assisted procedure less than two weeks post-op. Free marginal gingiva on facial are less stressed and more resistant to manipulation and shifting.
Connective Tissue Graft Before & After
Each of the grafting techniques that we implement is designed to enhance or replace the amount of gum supporting a tooth if there is inadequate gum tissue or if recession has occurred to expose the root.
Gum Graft Before & After
A gum graft will improve the aesthetics of your gum line, reduce further recession and bone loss, protect the tooth from decay, prevent tooth mobility, and reduce tooth sensitivity to hot or cold.
