Soft Tissue Treatment with a Soft Touch

While your teeth generally take much of the credit for your ability to eat and speak, your soft tissues perform vital functions that you may sometimes take for granted. Most notably, your gums are the protective barrier that keeps infection out and your teeth in. Sometimes having too little or too much soft tissue can make you feel self-conscious, can limit essential oral functions, and can even jeopardize your dental health. Our skilled dentist at Tharp, Klaus, & Kelly Dental Clinic offers customized soft tissue periodontal treatments like frenectomies and gum recontouring in Flowood, MS to gently rebalance and restore your dental health so you can live a functional and healthy life!

For all your soft tissue concerns, we welcome you to seek treatment from our experienced dentist, Dr. Klaus.

Gum Recontouring

Too much gum tissue covering your teeth can make them appear small or short and give you a “gummy” smile look. With care and precision, we’ll reshape the gum tissue and remove excess bone around your teeth to restore better symmetry and improve your tooth-to-gum ratio. Soft tissue recontouring, crown lengthening, and gingivectomy procedures rebalance your smile and restore your confidence!

That slender tissue connecting your top lip to your gums or your tongue to the bottom of your mouth are each called a frenulum. If either of these tissues is too restrictive, you may have difficulty speaking or eating leading to a tongue-tie or lip-tie. Receiving a frenectomy in Flowood, MS releases this problematic tissue, freeing you to get full enjoyment out of meals, conversations, and even simply smiling.

Gum Grafting

Gums receding or pulling away from the teeth leave sensitive roots exposed to harmful bacteria. Gum grafting restores gum tissue where it has receded, usually replacing it with tissue from your own mouth This tissue graft will fuse with your existing gums, alleviating your tooth sensitivity and giving you a consistent and healthy gumline.
