The mouth is home to many of the body's nerves, so when something wrong is happening to the tooth, the health of the overall body may be affected as well. It is quite common for people to have problems with not only their tooth, but their gums. Based on a check-up and examination, our cosmetic dentist can determine whether the gum or tooth is the underlying cause of any pain or discomfort. Cosmetic gum surgery can be used for both cosmetic and medical solutions. We offer procedures such as gummy smile correction at our NYC office.
While some procedures use a scalpel, today’s technology has developed to the point where most procedures are carried out with laser treatments. In gum surgery, we can often remove the gingiva, or the gum tissue, if it is experiencing problems caused by bleeding or infection. Occasionally, people may experience gum weakness and bleeding. In this case, the dentist can perform gingivoplasty in order to fix and reshape the gums.
Additionally, we offer gummy smile correction in NYC. Gummy smile refers to the condition where the gum is very exposed when a person smiles. At Dr. Kate Brayman's cosmetic dental office, we can treat this condition quickly, painlessly and easily with our laser treatment. Our gum contouring techniques are designed to make the patient feel as comfortable as possible, aiming to avoid the use of a scalpel.
We can also perform a procedure called a frenectomy, which is done when a patient does not like their gum tissue called a Frenulum. A Frenulum is a small piece of tissue that restricts motion and is commonly found under the tongue, gum sides, and upper side of the two front teeth. This small piece of tissue can lead to discomfort when eating and removing it is a quick procedure.
|Reasons to consider a frenectomy procedure:|
|Difficulty moving your tongue|
|Frenulum development between incisors which leads to gap in teeth|
|Gum recession due to lower lip pull from incisors|
|Gaps in between front teeth|
Cosmetic gum surgery is an ideal solution for multiple gum conditions.
