The word surgery is thrown around in reference to some dental procedures, but you should not let that word scare you. The word surgery in reference to dental procedures is minor in respect to surgery in other parts of the body. Most patients have very little post-operative pain or problems. If pain or problems occur, they will be managed in whichever way the patient feels most comfortable.

Other procedures include:
  • Crown lengthening
  • Smile lift (esthetic crown lengthening)
  • Biopsy of oral pathology
