Gum Surgery IN HIALEAH, FL

At LA Family Dentistry, we understand that gum disease can cause a variety of problems for our patients. In some cases, gum disease can progress to the point where non-surgical treatments are no longer effective. Then gum surgery may be necessary to stop the progression of the disease and restore your oral health.

Types of Gum Surgery

There are several types of gum surgery that our highly skilled periodontists may recommend based on the severity and type of your gum disease. Some of the most common types of gum surgery include:

  • Pocket Reduction Surgery: This type of surgery is used to remove bacteria and reduce the size of the pockets that have formed between the teeth and gums due to gum disease. By reducing the size of these pockets, the gums can reattach to the teeth and prevent further damage.
  • Soft Tissue Grafts: If gum disease has caused your gum line to recede, soft tissue grafts may be necessary to cover exposed roots and improve the appearance of your smile.

Regardless of the type of gum surgery that may be necessary for your individual case, our experienced team of periodontists will ensure that you are comfortable and informed throughout the entire process. We use the latest in sedation dentistry techniques to minimize discomfort and ensure a successful outcome.

If you are experiencing symptoms of gum disease, such as redness, swelling, or bleeding gums, don’t wait to seek treatment. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced periodontists and learn more about how we can help restore your oral health.
