Periodontology or periodontics is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gums, alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament. A person who practices this specialty is known as a periodontist.
With cosmetic periodontal surgery, we will be able to remove your excess gum and expose more of your tooth crown to give you a bigger, brighter smile. Besides cosmetic purposes, this procedure will also reduce your gum pockets that are at risk for future periodontal diseases. Our facility's dentists are professional and specialize in these kinds of difficult situations, so don't be hesitant to get this procedure done.
If you are interested in this procedure and wish for a better, brighter smile, please give us a call to discuss your options.
