As a surgical specialist, a periodontist like Dr. Noraian, may be called upon for assistance from your orthodontist. The orthodontist moves teeth to provide you with your best smile, and the periodontist provides the foundation and esthetics upon which that smile is built.
There are many surgical procedures with which the periodontist may assist the orthodontist including:
- Conventional Extraction
- Surgical Exposure of Unerupted Teeth
- Gummy Smile – See the section on Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery – Gingivectomy
- Soft Tissue Grafting – See the section on Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery – Gum Grafting
- Transseptal Fiberotomy
Dr. Noraian will be happy to discuss these options with your further whether or not your orthodontist has referred you directly to us.
