What is periodontal surgery?

Also known as gum surgery, this procedure involves regenerating the functionality and aesthetics of your smile by fixing uneven gumlines, over- or under-exposed teeth, re-growing destroyed gum and jaw bone areas, and even correct embarrassing speech impediments.

This treatment is the shaping and redefining of your gum and bone margins to enhance the aesthetics, longevity, and functionality of your smile. These procedures vary, but they are all completed with obsessive attention to detail and artistic design.
A procedure that typically involves removing some of the gum tissue to make submerged or “short teeth” look longer and more pronounced. This creates a more uniformed smile with the proper gum-to-tooth ratio and can be done in just a few hours!
This procedure is usually used to thicken or lengthen a patient’s gum tissue to prevent overexposed roots and sensitive tooth structure. This addresses gaps and teeth that appear to be “too long.” Depending on your needs, we may re-graft tissue from another area of your mouth or use a donor tissue.
Since the sinuses are located just above the upper rear jawbone, you will need more healthy bone density or slightly elevate the bottom of your sinuses to successfully place a dental implant. You will need our specialist periodontist in Auburn, CA to evaluate if this procedure is right for you.
Frenectomy is a simple, safe, and minor surgical procedure to improve aesthetics and speech problems. It is a procedure that removes or loosens a band of muscle tissue, called frenum, which is connected to the lip, cheek, or floor of the mouth. By removing the frenum, we can free-up movement for the lip and tongue during speech.
Sometimes due to disease, missing teeth, or long-term denture use, your bone structure begins to wither away. Using advanced tissue engineering technology, we can regrow 30-70% of your bone mass to better support a dental implant. It’s like laying a second foundation of natural bone mass to rebuild your smile.
A minimally invasive procedure we do right after a tooth extraction to maintain the existing bone structure underneath. We graft bone tissue into an implant site to trigger your body’s natural regenerative properties in that area in order to regain lost thickness and height capable of supporting an implant.
