Crown lengthening is sometimes necessary to deal with a "gummy" smile or enable another dental procedure such as a tooth extraction or putting in dental implants.
Maybe you have some form/stage of gum disease or fear you may have it. Or, maybe you simply want to be on top of things so as to prevent gum disease before it ever happens. In either case, you can benefit from learning basic information relative to gums, gum disease, and laser periodontal treatment that is given below!
There are many options now available when it comes to modern dental implants, and it can be difficult for those unfamiliar with implants to know which option to choose.
Laser periodontal treatment has some amazing results that greatly benefit patients, including minimization of pain, bleeding, and swelling and faster recovery time. All this is done without scalpels, without stitches, and in a single visit - though a few follow up visits may be necessary to monitor progress over the next few months.
Many people assume that dental implants are an impractical solution or that, were they to get them, it would take multiple dental visits and months and months of painful experiences. That's not always the case at all.
