Our Soft Tissue Treatments

Gingivectomies

Gingivectomies are a soft tissue treatment that involves the removal of diseased gum tissue from around your teeth. Gingivectomies return your mouth to proper health and can effectively save your tooth roots and jawbone from deterioration.

Frenectomies

A tongue- or lip-tie is a common oral problem that restricts movement of the tongue or the upper lip. A frenectomy allows Dr. Wilhelm to gently remove the connecting tissue (frenulum) that restricts movement and improves patients’ quality of life. This means either improved movement for the tongue or proper positioning of the upper lip.

Gum Grafting

When gum recession affects your smile, we can restore lost soft tissue with a gum graft to prevent damage to your sensitive tooth roots. The gum graft will cover exposed tooth roots to protect them and restore balance to the appearance of your smile.

Guided Tissue Regeneration

While not a treatment itself, guided tissue regeneration is used frequently to improve the soft tissues in their healing process. This technique guides the soft tissues into proper position for optimal healing. We can also use this for bone grafting to keep bone protected while it integrates with your jaw.
