We can fix your gummy smile with a gingivectomy. Also known as crown lengthening, a gingivectomy removes excess gum tissue and bone to uncover your tooth surface. This procedure can be used for esthetic purposes, such as creating wide, even smiles or it may be performed for functional purposes, in order to access and restore a tooth that is fractured or decayed beneath the gum line.
Guided tissue regeneration encourages the regrowth of bone tissue. Both periodontal disease and prolonged tooth loss result in a loss of bone. Bone is essential to the health of your teeth as it provides support. Guided tissue regeneration in Ottawa, ON can be achieved with membrane barriers, bone grafts, proteins to stimulate tissue growth, or growth factor materials.
Connective tissue gum grafting can restore your gums to previously higher, more attractive levels through the use of your own healthy tissue. Our doctors will transfer the donor tissue to the area where it is needed, covering your exposed tooth roots. Gum grafting tissue will fuse with the existing tissue over time.
Osseous surgery is a periodontal disease treatment in which we remove bacteria, smooth bone, and return the periodontal pockets to a more desirable position. Osseous surgery, or flap surgery as it is sometimes called, can save your teeth by treating the infection and reducing the size of your periodontal pockets.
Once you have had gum disease, regular periodontal maintenance is necessary to monitor and control any potential infections. Typically scheduled at three to four month intervals, periodontal maintenance with GumDocs will ensure your optimal gum health.
Scaling and Root Planing is a nonsurgical method of clearing the bacteria away from the teeth and gums. A successful treatment for gum disease, scaling and root planing also includes cleaning the tooth roots below the gum line, removing plaque to deliver a healthier smile.
