Problems with Your Gums?

Soft Tissue Surgery Solves Them All

Your gums are an important protective barrier for your teeth. If their health is compromised your teeth and jawbone may also be affected. Maintain their health by brushing and flossing as directed and by avoiding tobacco products. If you develop gum disease (periodontal disease), you may lose teeth and jawbone mass. Not all soft tissue treatments are intended to cure gum disease, however. Some allow normal oral functioning while others enhance your smile esthetics. A Columbia University-trained oral and maxillofacial surgeon with nearly 20 years of experience, Dr. Wladimir Gedeon provides effective soft tissue surgery in Danbury, CT.

Featured Soft Tissue Treatments


When your gums detach from your teeth it usually indicates an infection of bacteria-releasing tartar on the portion of the teeth underneath your gumline. If deep cleaning isn’t adequate, Dr. Gedeon can remove the tartar by removing the entire area of infected tissue itself. Following this procedure, known as a gingivectomy, your gums and teeth should naturally reconnect to one another.


You may have never heard of the frenula, but there are two of them in your mouth and you use them daily. They’re the thin soft tissues that attach your tongue to the bottom of your mouth and your upper lip to your upper gums. If these tissues are too small, they can interfere with normal functioning of your mouth, making eating and speaking difficult. Dr. Gedeon can perform a frenectomy, releasing these constrictive tissues to give your mouth full, comfortable freedom of movement!

Soft Tissue Recontouring

Excessive gum tissue can make your smile look uneven and make you feel self-conscious. When providing dental implant treatment Dr. Gedeon can carefully reshape your gums so that your gumline is consistent and your new implant restorations look natural alongside your other teeth. You’ll end up with the seamless, balanced smile that your dental implant investment calls for.
