Oral tissue is an essential part of your mouth, acting as a barrier against bacteria. That said, there are some situations where removing some of this tissue can improve patient outcomes. Learn about these reduction surgeries below.
Once it reaches a certain point, it’s impossible to address periodontal disease with home care. In fact, it can even reach a point where professional scaling and root planing is insufficient for preventing further inflammation.
In these situations, osseous surgery can remove the bacteria that’s inflaming your gums. We will also remove the diseased gum tissue.
Excessive gum tissue can make your teeth look short, as well as making it more difficult to address deep gum pockets.
Gingivectomies remove this gum tissue, helping to improve the appearance of your smile as well as bolstering your oral health.
Frena are muscle attachments connecting your gums, lip, and tongue. Sometimes, the way that the frenulum connects your gum to your upper or lower lip can cause cosmetic concerns or interfere with your oral health.
In these situations, we are likely to surgically remove it, with a procedure called frenectomy.
