Restoration of Cavities under the Gum
 

Occasionally,  the dentist just can't get access to a cavity that extends under the gums.  In these instances, the dentist will ask that the periodontist access and restore the lesion or place a temporary restoration to hold until a  more definitive restoration may be done.  Usually this procedure involves lifting the gum away from the tooth to restore the cavity.
