Soft Tissue Treatment - Canandaigua, NY

A Healthier Smile Starts Here

The soft tissues of your mouth—your gums, tongue, cheek, and lips—often require special attention to perform as they’re meant to. Sometimes the tissue becomes diseased. Other times an excess of tissue makes vital activities like eating and speaking difficult. Then there are those times when the exact nature of your soft tissue problems is unknown. In all instances, some tissue may need to be removed. When this is the case, rely on Dr. Germain Jean-Charles and Dr. Ajay Kashi, who both have extensive experience in periodontal procedures. With minimally invasive laser technology and their own steady, skilled hands, they can bring your soft tissues back to full health and allow you to enjoy a normal life again.

Gingivectomies Remove Diseased Tissue

Gum disease, or gingivitis, can develop gradually and is often difficult to detect in its earliest stage. Left untreated, gum disease can become periodontitis, a serious ailment that can lead to infected gum tissue and even losing some of your teeth. By performing gingivectomies, we can remove the unhealthy, infected sections of your gums, preventing the disease from spreading and saving you from having to undergo more complex and time-consuming procedures later on.

Frenectomies Offer Freedom

Frenula are parts of the body that most people take for granted, though for some patients, they can create difficulty with some of the most common daily activities like eating and speaking. Frenula are slender pieces of soft tissue; one frenulum anchors your tongue to the bottom of your mouth and the other connects your gums to your upper lip. When these tissues are too short, they can restrict the natural movement of your mouth and cause conditions known as “tongue-tie” and “lip-tie.” Frenectomies remove these tissues, restoring normal movement and functioning.
