Advanced Dentistry with a Gentle Touch

Reconstructing natural gum countours is one of the most valuable services a dentist can perform for his patients said Dr. Robert Korwin.

Dr Robert Korwin by attending a surgical hands on course, given by The Perio Institute on predictably successful gingival and connective tissue grafting, is now offering periodontal plastic surgery is used to reverse gum recession around teeth and implants, revise unaesthetic root exposure, to control tooth sensitivity, and to increase the amount of “attached” gum tissue.

Periodontal plastic surgery is a very useful technique that will treat and prevent unsightly gum recession, and can reduce or eliminate sensitivity caused by tooth roots that are exposed in the mouth. Dr Korwin has been applying similar periodontal plastic surgery techniques such as the ones taught by Dr. Kohner for many years for patients with gum problems.

These new techniques are many times more successful than older methods, and are more comfortable for the patient.

The good news is that daily flossing, smoking cessation, along with regular professional cleanings protects health and prevents gum disease. For more information about flossing, health, and keeping teeth for a lifetime, visit
