Crown lengthening in Brigham City, Utah, is a great way to expose more of your tooth’s surface area so you can beautify your smile and improve your oral health. This treatment usually involves the removal of gum tissue and bone, and it is extremely helpful when your gums are taking over your smile.
If you’re about to receive a crown lengthening treatment, our Haws Family Dentistry team is happy to help you prepare for your appointment! When you come in to see Dr. Jayson C. Haws, you can expect the following steps:
–Step 1: First, your dentist will numb your mouth with a local anesthetic. This will help prevent pain and discomfort during the treatment.
–Step 2: Your dentist will then cut the gums and pull them away from the tooth. This will expose the tooth and surrounding bone.
–Step 3: Then, he will remove the proper amount of gum tissue from your mouth and sometimes remove bone from the roots of the teeth if necessary. The bone will be removed using a combination of hand and rotary instruments.
–Step 4: Once the surface of the tooth has been exposed, the area will be deeply cleaned. Generally, it will be irrigated with sterile salt water.
–Step 5: When the area is deeply cleaned and free from bacteria, debris, and particles, your gums will be stitched back together.
