Our Grand Rapids dentists offer a range of tissue removal procedures with our laser to help you maintain a healthy smile.
During a consultation with one of our dentists, we’ll help you explore your options for treating periodontal disease and improving the appearance of your gums. You are a candidate for gum surgery if you have periodontal disease or wish to improve the appearance of your gums.
Periodontal disease is caused by untreated plaque buildup on your teeth and gums.
Gum surgery will improve the appearance of your gums!
As the disease progresses, you are more at risk for receding gums and jawbone deterioration. When this happens, the gum pulls away from your teeth to expose tooth roots. Thankfully, our dentists have experience treating periodontal disease through gum surgery.
