You’ve been to dozens of business lunches before, but this one is particularly captivating.

What Is Oral Soft Tissue Surgery?
Sometimes, mouth surgery is required to restore gum tissues around teeth or prepare gum tissues for dental implants. Oral soft tissue surgery may be for the augmentation, reduction, or reshaping of your gums. Common soft tissue surgeries include:
- Frenectomy: Frena are small folds of tissue under the tongue, inside the upper lip, inside the lower lip, or connecting the cheeks and gums. A Frenectomy may be performed to loosen the frenum’s connection and extend the range of motion in the area.
- Soft tissue grafts: Soft tissue gum grafts are used to increase gum tissue in certain areas. Gum tissue grafting can be used to:
o Prevent further gum recession
o Cover exposed tooth roots
o Stop gum sensitivity
o Improve gum appearance
o Treat advanced periodontitis
- Gingivectomy and Gingivoplasty: A gingivectomy surgically removes diseased or excess gum tissue caused by advanced gum disease (periodontitis). Gingivoplasty is the surgical reshaping of the gum tissue, and is often performed in combination with a gingivectomy.
- Crown Lengthening: If a tooth has been severely weakened by decay, is cracked, broken, or worn down, Dr. Banda may perform a crown lengthening procedure to ensure that enough of the tooth’s structure is available to securely hold a dental crown in place.
Is Oral Soft Tissue Surgery Painful?
Dr. Banda is trained and experienced in all aspects of anesthesia and sedation administration. Every consideration will be made to ensure that your oral soft tissue surgery is as comfortable, relaxed, and pain free as possible. Usually, patients describe their oral surgery experience as surprisingly pleasant. After surgery, you may be prescribed pain medication to make you as comfortable as possible at home.
