Periodontal Procedures



A frenum is where the cheeks, tongue, and lip attach to the gum. It usually requires no intervention. Sometimes the frenum can pull or be too heavy. This can alter speech and may lead to gum recessionl. Fortunately, the process to remove the frenum is very simple. It is usually completed with a laser and has little to no pain.

Gum Grafting

Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is a procedure to create gum tissue where it is lacking. Exposed roots can be sensitive and frequently can be covered with soft tissue grafting. A thick band of gum tissue will protect the bone and improve the outlook for some compromised teeth.


Acellular Dermal Matrix

Gum grafting can be accomplished without using your own tissue. A purchased material can be placed to protect the bone and cover some of the root surace. This is less invasive and involves only one surgical site. We look forward to talking with you more about this service.



Sedation keeps you relaxed during dental treatment. There are several choices for how sedation is delivered, including nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral medication, and intravenous (IV) medication. Dr. Wiland will talk with you about sedation at your consultation appointment.
