Additional Services

Welch Perio offers a wide range of services to meet your individual needs including:

  • Periodontal Plastic Surgery & Crown Lengthening
  • Frenectomy
  • Soft Tissue Pathology


The band of tissue that connects your lip, tongue, and cheek can sometimes be exceptionally short, thick, tight, or extend too far down along the tongue or the gum. This can sometimes interfere with the alignment of teeth or constrict movement. A simple procedure called a Frenectomy can be performed.

Call 731.215.2347 to schedule your consultation. 

Periodontal Plastic Surgery & Crown Lengthening

If you’d like to improve the esthetics of your smile, periodontal plastic surgery or crown lengthening might be the right procedure for you.

Sometimes people feel self-conscious when they have a “gummy” smile. Dr. Welch can reshape gum and bone tissue to expose more of your natural tooth, giving you a beautiful new smile.

Restorative and cosmetic dental procedures are also common if your tooth is broken, or decayed.

Call 731.215.2347 to schedule your consultation.

Soft Tissue Pathology

If your dentist has referred you to Dr. Welch for soft tissue pathology, this means there is an alteration in the tissue inside your mouth. This can sometimes be a warning sign for oral cancer. Dr. Welch takes a sample of this tissue to determine if it’s serious or not.

Common signs that could mean a cancerous growth: 

  • Difficulty swallowing or chewing
  • A sore or lump on the skin lining the inside of the mouth
  • Thickening of the tissue inside the mouth
  • Red or white patches inside the mouth

It’s important not to ignore these signs and to call your family dentist for a referral. If you’ve been referred to Dr. Todd, please call 731.215.2347 to schedule your consultation.
