Before & After Gum Surgery at Faktor DMD, NY


If you suffer from periodontal disease, there are several surgical solutions that our team may recommend. Excessive plaque and bacteria buildup are the most common cause of gum disease. Over time, your body cannot fight the infection. However, certain factors, like chronic illnesses and medications, can make you more susceptible to mouth problems. This is true even if you keep up with good oral hygiene practices.
FaktorDMD is the best place for gum grafts in both Manalapan, NJ and Manhattan, NY. Our team of dentists carefully investigate the dental concerns of each patient before starting each treatment process.


There are various types of cosmetic gum issues. For example, you may have a gummy smile, which means that your teeth appear to be too short or show too much gum tissue. For some gummy smiles, teeth may look like they are too long due to exposed roots. In other cases, the gum line is uneven, meaning the soft tissue covers some tooth areas and more than others. Another gum concern could be advanced-stage gum disease which requires corrective surgery. Regardless of the gum tissue worry, these problems can be treated successfully with the following different types of gum surgery.


  • Crown lengthening. Our team will remove excess gum tissue to make teeth appear longer. This procedure is performed to treat periodontal disease and for cosmetic appeal.
  • Gingival flap or pocket reduction surgery. This procedure involves folding back the gums to remove plaque and bacteria surgically. Then, the soft tissue will be re-attached to the teeth.
  • Regeneration. Like pocket reduction, the gums are folded back, and bacteria are removed. Then, membranes, bone grafts, or other stimulating proteins are inserted. This process encourages tissue regeneration allows the gums to fit around the teeth again.
  • Soft tissue graft. A soft tissue sample is extracted from the mouth and placed on the affected area of the gums. The graft replaces lost tissue due to gum recession or disease. A soft tissue graft is an effective solution for gum disease treatment or cosmetic purposes because it conceals root exposed areas and enhances the appearance of teeth.
If our team is not able to help solve your gum tissue issues, you may be referred to a periodontist. A periodontist has specialized training and focuses on the treatment of gum disease.
