Gum graft surgery:

Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession. Gum graft surgery will repair the defect and help to prevent additional recession and bone loss. Gum grafts can be used to cover roots or develop gum tissue where absent due to excessive gingival recession. During gum graft surgery, your periodontist takes gum tissue from your palate or another donor source to cover the exposed root. This can be done for one tooth or several teeth to even your gum line and reduce sensitivity.

DENTAL CROWN LENGTHENING

You may have asked your periodontist about procedures 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, your periodontist performs a dental crown lengthening procedure.

 GINGIVECTOMY 

Removal of excessive gingival tissues. When the patient is ready for orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances but access to the clinical crown precludes optimal bracket position placement, a gingivoplasty procedure can be used to establish a more favorable crown-to-crestal height relationship by removalof excess gingiva.

 DEPIGMENTATION OF GUMS

Black and brown pigments are occasionally present on gums. Such pigments are removed to produce natural and pink aesthetic gums.

PERIDONTAL ACCELERATED ORTHODONTIC OSTEOGENESIS

The innovative combination of selective alveolar periodontal decortication surgery and augmentation grafting with orthodontic treatment results in an acceleration of orthodontic treatment, enhanced stability of orthodontic results, and long-term improvement of the periodontium PAOO has contributed greater stability of orthodontic clinical outcomes and less relapse.

 FRENECTOMY

A frenectomy is simply the removal of a frenum in the mouth.  A frenum is a muscular attachment between two tissues.  There are two frena (the plural form of frenum) in the mouth that can sometimes obstruct normal function and are candidates for frenectomies.  These frena are called the lingual frenum, which connects the tongue to the floor of the mouth, and the maxillary labial frenum, which connects the inside of your upper lip to your gums just above your upper two front teeth.
