Excessive or Uneven Gums

An estimated sixty-five percent of Americans have bad breath. Over 40 million Americans have "chronic halitosis", which is persistent bad breath. Ninety percent of all halitosis is of oral, not systemic, origin.
Many people inherit the problem of excessive or uneven gums.

A cosmetic surgical procedure called a gum lift can be used to correct this problem.

Some abnormalities, as well as advanced gum disease that cannot be treated periodontically or non-surgically, may require application of soft tissue grafts. Such procedures can be used to cover an exposed root or correct uneven gum lines.
