Examples of work
This patient was dissatisfied with the aesthetics of the crowns and bridges placed at another clinic. She wanted a beautiful smile.
Following the recommendation of acquaintances, she went to Dr. Tetri. He performed Digital Smile Design, the patient tried on her new smile, and then the treatment began. Ceramic crowns were placed (their shade was agreed upon by the patient), and the gums were lifted.
This patient was embarrassed to smile because it exposed her gum line (gummy smile). She also had bruxism that caused them to wear away.
Dr. Tetri performed gum reconstruction, making the gum line aesthetic. Then he placed porcelain veneers.
Now the patient loves to smile and makes others happy with her beautiful smile!
Types of gum surgery
Removal of overgrown, inflamed edges of gum tissue led to the formation of periodontal pockets. Aesthetic gingival contour was formed.
Gingival curettage involves the deep cleaning of periodontal pockets from subgingival tartar, pathogenic bacteria, and granulations. Non-surgical curettage is performed when the depth of the pocket is up to 4 mm, and open – when it is 5-6 mm.
In the case of gingival recession (attrition), soft tissue taken from the palate is transplanted.
Surgical reshaping of the gum and bone tissue for the subsequent restoration of a severely damaged tooth with a crown.
Restoration of the jawbone area damaged by periodontal disease. A block of living donor bone is implanted.
Frenulectomy involves surgery to correct abnormal attachment of the frenulum of the lips and tongue to the periodontium. This attachment leads to serious consequences: exposed tooth roots, the formation of gaps between the incisors, malocclusion, loosening, and premature loss of teeth.
If the pocket depth is more than 6 mm, two vertical gingival incisions are made on both sides. The gingival flap is folded back to open access to clean the tooth roots of bacterial plaque, calculus, and granulations.
Stages of gum surgery
Dr. Tetri performs in-depth diagnostics based on GNM principles. The CT scan evaluates the depth/complexity of the pathological process and also identifies hidden problems. Then he scans movements of the mandible (K7 CMS), measures facial muscle activity (EMG), and examines the condition of the temporomandibular joint (ESG). Afterwards, he determines the cause of the problem.
Before gum surgery, Dr. Tetri performs professional oral hygiene by removing plaque and calculus. Then, he performs surgery under local anesthesia or sedation.
After surgery, the doctor gives recommendations for the rehabilitation period – the duration will depend on the extent/complexity of the surgery.
