With innovative options, technologies, and techniques, undergoing oral surgery has never been easier. Here are the services we offer:
A gum graft is an overarching term for surgical gum procedures that work to cover a tooth root that has been exposed due to gum recession with grafted oral tissue to restore oral health. There are two kinds of gum grafts: connective tissue grafts and free gingival grafts. Our dentist in Grande Prairie, AB, will work with you to determine which form of gum graft is right for your needs.
Also referred to as periodontal surgery, a gingivectomy is a procedure that is intended to treat overgrown gums or gum disease by removing part of the gums. This procedure can be both medical and cosmetic but is usually performed for oral health purposes. The process involves removing the affected section of the gum and restoring the gums to a healthy condition. This procedure is low-risk and high-benefit.
Periodontal disease infects the structures around your teeth. Traditionally, dentists use scaling and root planing to treat gum disease, and in more severe cases, they will use periodontal surgery. However, not all patients want to undergo such an invasive procedure, which is why our team offers periodontal laser treatment in Grande Prairie, AB. Our dentist will use a laser to remove infected tissue during this procedure and seal the healthy tissue against the tooth root.
