Soft Tissue Treatments - Edgefield, SC

Gentle Care for Your Soft Tissues

Enhancing the Esthetics and Health of Your Mouth

Your gums and soft tissues play a major role in the appearance and the health of your smile. For instance, a “gummy smile” can make your teeth look small, but also leads to a higher chance of bacteria developing under the gums. In some cases, red and swollen gums are a sign of gum disease, which will compromise not only the health of your teeth but also your entire body! We can restore the esthetics of your gums and improve your oral and physical health through specialized soft tissue treatments such as a gingivectomy in Edgefield, SC. Our state-of-the-art practice offers comprehensive treatments using advanced diagnostic and surgical technology. We focus on the functional health of your gum tissue first, but we’ll be sure you’re happy with the way your new smile looks, too.

Why You May Need Soft Tissue Treatment

Our Periodontal Services

Gum Grafting
Protect your teeth and enhance your smile after gum recession. We take tissue from the roof of your mouth or a donor source and position it over the exposed tooth roots. Gum grafting restores the tooth roots' protective barrier and balances the look of your smile.
1
Soft Tissue Recontouring
You can also balance a “gummy” smile by removing and reshaping excessive tissue. We remove the extra gum tissue that hides the tooth crowns and creates a more symmetrical and even look by redesigning the gums to naturally arch around each tooth.
2
Gingivectomy
We offer numerous gum disease treatments including gingivectomy in Edgefield, SC. This technique treats moderate cases of gum disease by surgically removing infected gum tissue, then cleaning the periodontal pockets before suturing the tissue back in place around the teeth. A gingivectomy reduces the pocket depth around the teeth and improves overall oral health.
3
Frenectomy
This treatment enhances children's and adults’ ability to eat, swallow, and speak properly and free of discomfort. We remove excess tissue that limits the tongue’s movement. We also improve smile esthetics by releasing the tissue connecting your lips to your gums. If restrictive, this tissue can cause a gap in the two front teeth.
4
Guided Tissue Regeneration
Optimize the healing of soft tissue and bone after gum disease treatment with this regenerative procedure. We place a barrier membrane between the treated bone and the gum tissue to make sure each is healing properly without interference from each other.
