Soft tissue surgery refers to surgical procedures that involve the gums and other soft tissues in the mouth.


What is a Soft Tissue Surgery?

Soft tissue surgery refers to surgical procedures that involve the gums and other soft tissues in the mouth. These are often performed to treat conditions that affect the gum tissues and underlying structures of the teeth or to enhance the aesthetics of the gum line.


Soft tissue surgeries can range from simple procedures like gum grafts, where gum tissue is taken from one area of the mouth and transplanted to another, to more complex procedures such as periodontal surgery to treat gum disease. In the domain of dentistry, soft tissue surgery can be utilized for a variety of reasons.


For instance, excessive gum tissue can be removed for a cosmetic effect in a procedure known as gum contouring or gingivectomy. Soft tissue grafts, on the other hand, are used to counter gum recession and protect root surfaces of the teeth.

Moreover, soft tissue surgery can be used as part of the treatment for periodontal disease, where infected gum tissue is removed to halt the progression of the disease. These procedures often improve oral health, function, and the overall appearance of the patient's smile.


Soft tissue surgery is a branch of surgical intervention that focuses on the treatment and repair of non-bony structures within the body. This specialized field encompasses procedures involving muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, and various organs.

Soft tissue surgery is commonly employed in diverse medical disciplines, including general surgery, plastic surgery, and dentistry.


In dental practice, soft tissue surgery addresses conditions such as gum surgeries, oral lesion removals, and other procedures related to the oral mucosa.


This type of surgery requires precision and skill to ensure optimal healing and functionality of the treated soft tissues, ultimately contributing to improved overall health and well-being

WHY Soft Tissue Surgery?


Inadequate gum care can lead to various adverse effects on oral health, with potential consequences such as tooth loss. Symptoms of poor gum health include swollen gums that bleed easily, indicating inflammation and vulnerability.

  1. Swollen Gums that Bleed Easily: Swelling and bleeding of the gums are signs of inflammation, often caused by the accumulation of plaque and bacteria along the gumline. This condition is known as gingivitis and, if left untreated, can progress to more severe forms of gum disease.

  2. Sensitive Teeth: Gum recession exposes the roots of the teeth, which are more sensitive than the enamel-covered crowns. This exposure can lead to tooth sensitivity, especially to hot, cold, or sweet stimuli.

  3. Bad Breath (Halitosis): Persistent bad breath is often a result of bacteria in the mouth, particularly in the gums. The breakdown of food particles and the presence of bacteria contribute to foul-smelling breath.

  4. Gum Recession: Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue pulls away from the teeth, exposing the roots. This can be a consequence of untreated gingivitis or periodontitis, and it may lead to increased tooth sensitivity and aesthetic concerns.

  5. Bone Loss: Prolonged gum disease can extend to the supporting bone structure, resulting in bone loss around the teeth. This compromises the stability of the teeth and can eventually lead to tooth loss.


Taking proactive measures such as regular dental check-ups, proper oral hygiene practices, and addressing early signs of gum issues are essential for preventing the progression of these symptoms and maintaining overall oral health.

The emphasis on timely intervention reflects our dedication to not only arresting the progression of gum issues but also restoring optimal oral health and aesthetics.


We at Studio Aesthetique do various Soft Tissue Surgery procedures from:


  1. Bone Regeneration: Bone regeneration is a specialized soft tissue surgery procedure aimed at restoring and augmenting bone density in areas where it has been compromised. This procedure is crucial in cases where bone loss has occurred due to factors such as gum disease, trauma, or tooth extractions. By promoting the growth of new bone tissue, this surgery enhances the foundation for dental implants and supports overall oral health.

  2. Gum Recession Therapy: Gum recession therapy addresses the condition where the gum tissue around the teeth pulls back, exposing more of the tooth or its root. This can lead to increased tooth sensitivity and aesthetic concerns. Our soft tissue surgery for gum recession involves various techniques, including grafting procedures, to restore and reposition the gum tissue, ensuring proper coverage of the tooth roots.

  3. Periodontal Flap Surgeries: Periodontal flap surgeries are performed to treat advanced cases of gum disease. The procedure involves lifting back the gum tissue to access and clean the roots of the teeth and remove any accumulated plaque or tartar. This surgery is instrumental in halting the progression of gum disease and preventing further damage.

  4. Guided Tissue Regeneration: Guided tissue regeneration is a specialized soft tissue surgery that encourages the growth of new bone and gum tissue in areas where they have been lost. This technique utilizes barrier membranes to protect the space around the tooth and allow undisturbed regeneration of tissues. It is particularly effective in addressing defects resulting from periodontal disease.

  5. Bone Grafting: Bone grafting is a procedure commonly used in dental implantology. It involves transplanting bone tissue from one area of the body or using synthetic materials to augment the jawbone's strength and volume. This soft tissue surgery is crucial for creating a stable foundation for dental implants and achieving successful implant integration.


At Studio Aesthetique, our expertise in these soft tissue surgery procedures allows us to provide comprehensive solutions for various dental and periodontal concerns, ensuring optimal oral health and aesthetics for our patients.


  1. Preservation of Natural Teeth: Oral tissue surgeries, such as periodontal flap surgeries and guided tissue regeneration, play a vital role in preserving natural teeth affected by advanced gum disease. By addressing the underlying issues and providing effective treatments, these surgeries help prevent tooth loss and promote long-term oral health.

  2. Prevention of Bone Loss: Procedures like bone regeneration and bone grafting are essential for preventing and addressing bone loss in the jaw. Maintaining bone density is crucial for the stability of teeth and supporting structures. Oral tissue surgeries contribute to the preservation of the jawbone, particularly in cases of tooth extraction or trauma.

  3. Improved Aesthetics: Gum recession therapy is a soft tissue surgery that enhances the aesthetics of the smile by addressing receding gum lines. By repositioning or grafting gum tissue, this procedure restores a more harmonious and attractive appearance, covering exposed tooth roots and improving overall smile aesthetics.

  4. Enhanced Oral Health: Oral tissue surgeries contribute to overall oral health by treating conditions like gum disease, reducing inflammation, and eliminating pockets where bacteria can thrive. These procedures help prevent the progression of oral diseases, ensuring the health and longevity of teeth and surrounding tissues.
