Gum and Bone Grafting in Dallas
The gums are a more intricate part of your oral health than many patients realize. Gums do more than just frame your smile; they also protect the roots of your teeth and hold them firmly in place. Patients who are affected by gum recession see the damages in both the aesthetic appearance of their smile and the health of their teeth.
Gum recession occurs when the gums pull away from the teeth due to disease, bacteria, or improper oral care. This damage exposes the sensitive roots of the tooth, leaving them vulnerable to further damage and eventually, tooth loss. Gum tissue does not grow back naturally when affected by gum recession, which is why we offer a professional gum grafting treatment to restore your smile. As a board-certified periodontist. Dr. Brock Lynn has the education and experience necessary to restore your beautiful smile and protect your teeth for years to come.
Patients may visit our Dallas dental office for gum graft surgery for the following conditions:
- Tooth sensitivity to hot or cold drinks
- Loose or mobile teeth
- Teeth that appear longer than usual
- Spaces forming between the teeth
- Tooth discoloration near the gums
At Lynn Dental Care, our gum grafting treatments are time-tested and proven to protect your smile from the negative effects of gum recession. When performing gum grafting treatments for cases of gum recession, we will cover your exposed tooth roots with graft material that is typically taken from the roof of the mouth or a donor source.
The graft material is then carefully sutured over the site of the gum recession to protect the tooth roots and restore balance to the gum line. After a brief period of healing, the gum tissue will blend seamlessly with your smile. For patients with dental anxiety, we offer relaxing sedation dentistry, which can help make the procedure as painless as possible.

The Pinhole® Surgical Technique
Most patients who experience receding gums chalk it up to a cosmetic issue, but the truth is that gum recession also poses risks to a person’s overall oral health. At Lynn Dental Care, Dr. Brock Lynn is trained to offer the minimally invasive Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Unlike gum grafting, the Pinhole Surgical Technique does not require grafts, scalpels or sutures and is a gentle solution to treating gum recession. This makes it a less invasive than traditional gum grafting with generally fewer post-operative symptoms and shorter recovery time.
Crown Lengthening in Dallas, TX
Patients who have excessive gum tissue that covers a large portion of their teeth often refer to the condition as a “gummy smile.” At Lynn Dental Care, we offer a solution called crown lengthening, a gentle technique used to reshape a patient’s gum line in order to expose more tooth structure and provide an aesthetically pleasing balance between the teeth and gums. It is sometimes referred to as “periodontal plastic surgery.”
While it is most commonly performed for cosmetic purposes, the fact that it gives Dr. Brock Lynn access to the tooth structure below the gumline simplifies repairs and dental restorations. Not only does the procedure improve the appearance of a patient’s smile, it can also minimize the locations where bacteria thrive, which prevents cavities.
Gentle tooth extractions may be performed as an emergency response to dental trauma or injury, or as a preventive measure, such as wisdom tooth removal. Dr. Lynn provides extractions for patients who are experiencing pain and discomfort or have an infection caused by a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. Before any extraction, Dr. Lynn will administer a dental exam and take digital images to determine the extent of the damage.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Taking a health-focused approach to every patient, Dr. Lynn has the expertise and diagnostic tools to determine the healthiest timing for you or your child to have your wisdom teeth removed. Left untreated, wisdom teeth may cause cause pain, orthodontic problems, and other oral health concerns. Dr. Lynn will take time to assess your unique situation at your surgical consultation and create your custom treatment plan.
