Gum Tissue Recontouring
Dr. Caballero utilizes laser therapy for gum recontouring on patients with gummy smiles, receding gums, or an uneven gum line. Generally a cosmetic issue, there are times gum recontouring is used for health reasons. In patients with gum tissue overgrowth, pockets can develop that are difficult to keep clean and lead to the growth of bacteria. However, the tissue can be maintained at normal levels with simple laser dentistry that is painless and also makes the smile more pleasing. A safe alternative to gum surgery, laser therapy is a cutting-edge technology that offers patients effective results with shorter recovery time. The result is a beautiful smile with healthier gums and increased overall oral health.
The frenulum is the tissue that connects the tongue to the mouth. When children are born with a short frenulum, how they swallow and speak can be affected. For newborns, having a short frenulum makes it difficult to nurse and gain weight. Often, patients with this condition are referred to as tongue-tied and if not corrected, it can lead to dental problems.
The good news is that Dr. Caballero has the expertise to perform lingual frenectomies in-house, using laser treatment, which permanently removes the frenulum. Both the procedure and recovery times are quick and for newborns and infants, it corrects nursing and eating problems. In older children, a lingual frenectomy improves speech.
