- Crown Lengthening- Including functional and smile makeover: aesthetic crown lengthening and advanced procedures to fix GUMMY SMILE): A broken that may not have not tooth showing in the mouth could still be rescued. Crown lengthening procedure is usually a simple procedure of reducing either both or one of the tissue surrounding the tooth (Soft and hard tissue). Bone and/or gum tissue may be removed to allow more tooth structure above the gum line for a crown (or cap). Sometimes cavities can extend deep below the gum line and can be impossible to clean out and fill without an additional procedure called crown lengthening. Alternatively, failure to perform crown lengthening can sometimes result in the placement of filling or crowns so deep under the gums that is may become a chronic source of pain, inflammation, and discomfort.
- Exposure of Impacted Canine: Sometimes missing teeth in teens could remain stuck under the bone and the gum. Similarly, to wisdom teeth, canines (the eye teeth) are impacted and may require surgical exposure to access the tooth and pull it into proper alignment with orthodontics. In coordination with the orthodontics and with the use of different radiograph modalities, we can identify exactly where the tooth located for perfect exposure, ensuring that the tooth is surrounded by healthy bone and gum.
- Flap Surgery/ Osseous Surgery: Gum disease is a progressive disease that occurs when excessive plaque and tartar buildup around the tooth attract bacteria. Scientifically we usually say, “Gum disease is caused by biofilm and host response”. It has been shown that more than 75% of Americans have some level of gum disease and only some end up seeking treatment. People who smoke and diabetics are at higher risk of developing this disease. If left untreated, gum disease can destroy the supporting structures around your teeth which may eventually lead tooth loss. Even though not painful because of it chronic nature, gum disease has been linked to cancer, diabetes, heart conditions, Alzheimer, rheumatoid arthritis and cardiovascular diseases. This is a preventable and treatable condition but there is no cure. We offer advanced periodontal therapy such as osseous/flap surgery and non-surgical to get gum disease under control.
