What Is Oral Plastic Surgery?
If you don't like the look of your smile, you can change it with oral plastic surgery. This procedure uses the latest diagnostic tools and treatment protocols to perform oral plastic surgery. The three most common types of oral plastic surgeries performed at our practice in Houston, TX are frenectomies, functional crown lengthening, and gummy smile treatments. Periodontal (gum) disease can cause the gums to recede or to become overgrown, which increases the areas where dental plaque and bacteria can become trapped. Oral plastic surgery treats the cause of periodontal disease, prevents further problems, and improves the appearance of the gums and teeth, refreshing your smile. At our practice in Houston, TX, Dr. Nicosia performs several types of oral plastic surgery, including corrective jaw surgery. Treatment depends on the needs of each patient to give them their best treatment and results.
What Does Oral Plastic Surgery Involve?
At Patrick V. Nicosia D.D.S., M.S., Inc. in Houston, TX, we perform the latest treatment protocols. We can help improve your smile with oral plastic surgery and perform any of the following:
- Frenectomy – A simple surgical procedure that treats a lip-tie, tongue-tie, diastema, gum recession, or pain by removing one or both frena (connective tissue membranes) from the mouth
- Functional crown lengthening – This treatment removes gum tissue to minimize the areas where bacteria and plaque can hide while lengthening the visible tooth
- Gingivoplasty – Also called gum contouring, this procedure reshapes the soft gum tissue after the gum has receded
Dr. Nicosia can also perform corrective jaw surgery, which is commonly associated with sleep disorders and sleep apnea. It can also be used to treat jaw and face conditions related to growth, structure, and alignment. Once treatment is completed, patients see an improved facial appearance and a more comfortable, stable bite.
