Gum Surgeries

Gum surgeries, also known as periodontal surgeries, are procedures designed to treat gum diseases, correct gum recession, and enhance the overall health and appearance of the gums. These surgeries are vital in addressing issues that cannot be resolved with non-surgical treatments like scaling and root planning.

Our Range of Gum Surgery Services

We offer a comprehensive array of gum surgery services tailored to meet the diverse needs of our patients:

• Gingival Flap Surgery

This procedure involves lifting the gum tissue to access and clean deep-seated plaque and tartar. It’s commonly performed to treat advanced gum disease (periodontitis) and restore gum health.

• Gum Grafting

For patients with gum recession or exposed tooth roots, gum grafting involves transplanting gum tissue from one area of the mouth to another to cover exposed roots and improve the appearance of the gumline.

• Pocket Reduction Surgery

Also known as osseous surgery, this procedure aims to reduce the depth of gum pockets by removing bacteria and tartar from below the gumline and smoothing irregular surfaces of damaged bone.

• Crown Lengthening

This surgery adjusts the gum and bone levels to expose more of the tooth’s structure. It’s often performed to facilitate restorative procedures like dental crowns or to improve a “gummy smile.”

• Cosmetic Gum Contouring

Reshaping and sculpting the gumline to enhance the aesthetics of the smile, creating a more balanced and harmonious appearance.
