RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGICAL PROCEDURES
In cases where disease or trauma has resulted in loss of tissue, bone or gingival recession, reconstructive procedures, like soft and hard tissue grafting, allow us to rebuild the foundation of the teeth and re-establish the normal architecture of the gingiva and jaw bone.
Gingival grafting involves adding additional gum tissue to a site in order to establish a more harmonious gum line. This makes the teeth look more natural and improves the overall smile appearance.
A bone graft can either be used to regenerate lost bone around a root that has been affected by periodontitis, therefore prolonging the life of the tooth. Alternatively, bone grafts can rebuild the bone where teeth have been lost, with the goal of supporting an implant at that site to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
