This patient developed a gap between her front teeth due to periodontal disease and bite issues. Following an oral exam, Dr. Paresh B. Patel put together a plan for extensive and comprehensive dental care. Options of extraction, dental implants and bone grafting were all discussed, but in the end, due to her high smile line and young age, her treatment plan included periodontal plastic surgery and orthodontic care. Once the bone graft and periodontal plastic surgery (also known as root coverage or connective tissue grafting) were complete, she went through a period of healing. Thereafter, cosmetic orthodontic treatment was completed to give her back the tissue profile that would allow her to express her smile with confidence.
