State-of-the-Art Procedures for Efficacy and Comfort
Dr. Gurinsky practices gentle dentistry and employs state-of-the-art equipment including laser technology to precisely focus on the damage to your soft tissues while preserving and encouraging the new growth of healthy tissue.
Some of the advanced treatments we offer include:
Gum Grafting – This procedure allows those who previously experienced advanced periodontal (gum) disease to have their gums restored with soft tissue from the roof of their mouth or other sources of donor tissue. Dr. Gurinsky uses the latest, cutting-edge approach when performing gum grafts to cover tooth roots that have become exposed, halting further gum recession and ensuing bone loss.
Pocket Reduction Therapy - This treatment can include gingivectomy, osseous surgery, and flap surgery. It treats the damage caused by progressive gum disease and consists of several procedures that target bacteria and tartar that have accumulated at the root of the teeth.
Crown Lengthening – This procedure is used to expose a more of the tooth structure balancing the aesthetic of the tooth and gum, allowing a greater amount tooth to be accessed for crown placement.
Gum Reduction Surgery – This cosmetic treatment is recommended for those who feel their smile show too much or too little of their gums and can even out your gum line and to achieve a more appealing smile.
Frenectomies – This is a procedure that corrects a tight lingual frenum (usually in children). A frenum is the portion of soft tissue in your mouth that connects the bottom of your tongue to the floor of your mouth. Children born with a tight frenum experience discomfort and speech problems due to the restricted movement of their tongues. While these procedures can be performed by traditional surgery, our Denver gum disease specialist achieves optimal results using dental lasers. This advanced laser device improves precision, comfort and healing time, reducing the need for stitches after treatment.
