Soft Tissue Treatment From Experienced Surgeons
Those with a gummy smile or a tight frenum restricting the movement of their tongue or upper lip may benefit from gingivectomy or frenectomy soft tissue treatments at Associated Oral & Implant Surgeons. While often considered a cosmetic fix, these treatments also provide numerous health benefits to patients’ smiles as well. Excessive gum tissue that causes a gummy smile can be a breeding ground for bacteria and potentially cover cavities or buildup of plaque. For those with a tongue- or lip-tie, a tight piece of tissue restricts movement and can often be painful. Our oral surgeons are exceptionally qualified to perform these treatments and can do so with minimal discomfort or complications.
