This procedure involves the removal of tissues whose most common location is between the upper and lower front teeth, however, they can also occur in other areas. When found between the upper front teeth, they can prevent the two front teeth from coming together or cause orthodontic relapse with a resulting space. If located too close to the gum line of the lower front teeth, they can cause gum recession.
This procedure is accomplished in our office in less than thirty minutes and patients can expect a few days of mild discomfort.
Our Latest Patient Testimonial
The procedure was done on my 10 year old daughter and the experience could have not been any better for her. They explained what was going to happen to her, made sure she was comfortable, and completely put both of us at ease. Dr. Salzberg did an excellent job and called later that night to check in. I was very impressed.
