At Dr. Bernstein’s office, a young patient with braces faced a complicated situation. The 14 year-old patient presented with extensive gingival hyperplasia. Her orthodontic appliance made it hard to maintain oral hygiene so there was significant gingival hypertrophy on 24 teeth. Traditionally dentists would reach for a scalpel, which requires anesthesia and follow-up sutures. Dr. Bernstein offers his patients a less invasive alternative using Solea.
