Dr. Handsman and Dr. Jenny are skilled and experienced periodontists, so they are quite comfortable with all of the procedures performed in the office. However, they understand that you may not be so comfortable. Several of the procedures here are considered oral surgery. Therefore, some degree of anxiety or nervousness is to be expected. If, on the other hand, you’re so nervous that you simply cannot even think about your procedure, then we offer two types of sedation dentistry to help you overcome your anxiety and have the treatment you need. Speak to your periodontist in Worcester about oral sedation and IV sedation. Together you’ll decide which is best for you.

Take a look at your smile in the mirror. What do you see? Most people see teeth and a bit of gum tissue. However, if you see a lot of tooth and very little soft tissue, then you may have gum recession.

Dr. Handsman and Dr. Jenny are both experts in performing gum graft surgery so you can smile confidently and eat a varied diet without discomfort.
