Treatment for Your Soft Tissue Concerns

The soft tissues of your mouth—your lips, gums, cheeks, and tongue—sometimes require specialized care to ensure they’re functioning correctly. For some patients, this means treatment for disease. Other times, the tissue is causing too much restriction and is hindering the ability to eat and speak. Sometimes, changes in the tissue’s color and texture need to be evaluated. No matter what your soft tissue concerns are, rely on Dr. Saleh Elahwal and Dr. Germain Jean-Charles, who both have specialized training in periodontal procedures. With minimally invasive laser technology and experience in soft tissue treatment, they can restore health and vitality to your soft tissues.

Gingivectomies for Gum Disease

Gum disease, or chronic inflammation and infection of the gum tissues, will progress to dangerous stages if left untreated. Bone and tooth loss, as well as systemic health complications, characterize advanced periodontitis. By performing gingivectomies, we’ll rid your mouth of infected gum tissue to prevent the spread of disease and help healthy gums reattach to your teeth and bone. Gingivectomies can save you from needing more invasive and complex osseous surgery later.

Frenectomies for Tongue- and Lip-Tie

The soft piece of tissue that connects your tongue and upper lip to your mouth can sometimes be too tight and restrictive. This can cause problems with some of the most common daily activities like speaking and eating. You may know these problems as “tongue-tie” and “lip-tie.” Frenectomies reduce or remove these tissues to improve natural movement and function. With a laser, this procedure is incredibly fast and painless, and patients rarely experience any bleeding!

Biopsies for Suspicious Soft Tissues

Healthy soft tissues inside your mouth are a light pink color. When irregularities arise, like changes in color or texture, lumps or cysts, or other causes for concern, a soft tissue biopsy is recommended. We’ll remove the suspicious portion of your gum tissue to be evaluated by a Brooklyn, NY-area lab. They’ll be able to identify if the tissue requires treatment or is benign. If treatment is necessary, Drs. Elahwal and Charles will be here to help.
