What are the Different Periodontal Plastic Procedures?

Posted on 1/10/2022 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
What are the Different Periodontal Plastic Procedures?Periodontal plastic surgery procedures are done to prevent or correct various oral problems. Apart from that, these procedures are also done to fix anatomical development in your mouth. There are different types of periodontal plastic procedures, they include:

Flap Surgery

This is the most common type of plastic procedure. To do it, we lift a section of the gum tissue by making minor cuts in your gum. Then, we carefully remove bacteria and tartar that accumulates under the gums. Once this is done, we stitch back the gums to fit them perfectly. Flap surgery helps fix a wide range of oral conditions. For instance, if you have gummy teeth, this surgical procedure helps fix them. Those with advanced periodontal disease can also benefit from this procedure.

Bone Grafting

If gum disease damages the surrounding tooth root, we may decide to replace it with a graft. We built a gum graft by taking small parts of a donated bone, your bone, or a synthetic bone in a gum graft procedure. This procedure helps encourage natural bone regrowth and prevent future tooth loss. Furthermore, a gum graft procedure helps improve your smile. If too many of your teeth are exposed, this procedure helps cover them up. By doing so, you will have an improved smile with the ability to interact with others freely.

Soft Tissue Grafts

This is another common type of periodontal plastic procedure. This procedure helps restore the tissues you lost previously. To perform it, we remove a small piece from either donor tissue or from the roof of your mouth and use it to replace the missing tissue. This helps improve your smile and the ability to chew food properly. It also reduces the chances of oral conditions like gum disease and tooth decay. Get in touch with us for more information on periodontal plastic procedures.

This Doctor is a true healer!

Dr. Bembey is truly a healer. Not one of those Doctors who is in it for the money. You can tell that she loves her job. She actually made it enjoyable, and I don’t normally think of gum surgery as something to enjoy. She is very knowledgeable, and her skills are awesome! She communicates well and tells you small details that really help a lot. And she is there for you if you need her. Most importantly, she saved me from loosing my teeth! This Doctor is a GEM!!! I highly recommend her.
