Periodontal Gingiva Reshaping
The adjacent preoperative treatment photo represents the extent to which our patient's gum tissues had grown over the course of his treatment.
Crown Lengthening and tissue recontouring procedures were performed on a tooth by tooth basis.
IV sedation was used to assure absolute comfort during treatment, along with Valium and Versed. The medications were very successful in creating an almost ideal treatment environment for the sensitive patient.
The adjacent picture shows the natural appearance of normally sized tooth structure relationships on both the upper and lower arches.
The crown lengthening, gingival reshaping and recontouring treatments were performed shortly before orthodontic treatment ended to assure a great looking cosmetic result after the braces are removed.
Performing this procedure too early, for some patients, can result in the overgrowth condition to occur again.
