Downtown Toronto Periodontics
As teeth become loose, they can cause differences in the way your mouth “feels” when biting or chewing. Once bacteria causes infection around the tooth root, biting down can cause pressure, that may result in pain in and around the tooth and gum.
Our surgeons may also recommend dental crown lengthening to make a restorative or cosmetic dental procedure possible. Perhaps your tooth is decayed, broken below the gum line, or has insufficient tooth structure for a restoration, such as a crown or bridge. Crown lengthening adjusts the gum and bone level to expose more of the tooth so it can be restored.
You may want to improve a “gummy” smile because your teeth appear short. Your teeth may actually be the proper lengths, but they’re covered with too much gum tissue. To correct this, our surgeons perform a dental crown lengthening procedure.
If you’ve got any questions about the Periodontics Downtown Toronto treatment or anything else that concerns you, we are happy to answer them.
