Description:

The profound difference of our treatment is that the extraction and implants are completed in one day using general anesthesia. This allows patients to sleep through the procedure and avoid any feelings of pain or discomfort from start to finish. The greatest benefit our patients receive, is the time savings associated to our methods. Some dental offices have patients undergo years of surgery and bone grafting to receive the same or dissimilar results. Our tenured and professional staff members help our patients avoid the ongoing and costly dental visits, along with the uncomfortable dentures typically associated with the procedure. Dr. Tetri has 16 years of dental practice and education, spanning 3 countries, which has enabled him to provide consistent and quality results for all of his patients.

GUM LIFT

Case 1: Infection Treatment & Root Coverage

BEFORE

Severe gum recession and calculus

Before. Severe gum recession and calculus buildup (infection) [frontal view]

After micro-scaling and infection treatment

Before. After micro-scaling and infection treatment [frontal view]

This patient came in with severe gum disease, which led to disfiguring gum recession. Aside from the obvious cosmetic concerns, the gum recession also caused hypersensitivity. First Dr. Tetri performed a thorough micro-scaling and gum hygiene education to remove calculus (gum infection) and completely clean below the gum line, restoring the health of his gum tissue. This patient presented with a defect caused by a trauma from a previous extraction, resulting in gum and bone shrinkage. The resulting “gap” became so noticeable, it gave the patient an aesthetically disfigured smile.

AFTER

Root coverage

After. Root coverage (gum lift) [frontal view]

To prevent further deformity and sensitivity, Dr. Tetri performed a micro-surgical gum graft to cover the exposed root and restore a healthy gum level. The patient was given a dramatically enhanced smile and improved overall oral health.

Case 2: Gum Lift (During Orthodontic Treatment)

BEFORE

Correction of the defect with plastic micro surgery

Before. Gum tissue recession during orthodontic treatment (braces) [frontal view]

While this patient was undergoing orthodontic treatment (braces, as seen in the above picture), the patient developed severe gum recession on the bottom front teeth, which is not an uncommon occurrence for orthodontic patients. Gum repair (through micro-surgery) was immediately necessary to allow the orthodontic treatment to continue.

AFTER

Gum tissue recession

After. Correction of the defect with plastic micro surgery [frontal view]

After micro-surgical repair of the gum tissue

After. After micro-surgical repair of the gum tissue, the continued orthodontic treatment shrunk the gaps between the teeth [frontal view]

Dr. Tetri performed a procedure known as the “Tunnel Technique” in combination with a connective tissue graft, to repair the disfiguring gum recession and and ultimately save the patient’s teeth. This successful procedure allowed the patient to continue orthodontic treatment, and now the patient is on the way to a more healthy and beautiful smile.

Case 3

BEFORE

Inflamed gums with severe gum tissue recession

Before. Inflamed gums with severe gum tissue recession, disfiguring the smile and causing hypersensitivity

Before. Patient’s severe gum recession exposed the natural teeth (behind the veneers) and disfigured the patient’s smile [frontal view]

This patient had been wearing veneers for almost 10 years, but severe gum recession caused the natural teeth to be exposed behind the veneers.

AFTER

Root coverage over the veneer hides natural teeth

After. Root coverage over the veneer hides natural teeth, giving the patient a normal, healthy smile [frontal view]
