Healthy Gums, Healthy Smile,
Why It is Beneficial
Treating Your Gums via Gingivectomy
A gingivectomy is the surgical removal of the gum tissue around teeth. This is often completed when a person suffers from gum disease to trim away the damaged tissues and reduce the pockets between teeth. A gingivectomy may also remove gum tissue that is causing a “gummy” smile to improve the smile’s overall symmetry and tooth-to-gum ratio and to reduce excess tissue that is prone to infection. Sometimes a gingivectomy is used to gain access to more of a tooth in need of repair. Without excess soft tissues, a restoration like a dental crown can be securely and snuggly attached. Patients who complete this treatment experience improved dental function and better smile esthetics.
Is Gum Disease Affecting you?
How do I know if I have gum disease? Seeing Your dentist on a regular scheduled 6-month maintenance checkup will help keep an eye on your gums and checking for any signs of gum disease. If you have gum disease, your dentist may recommend a gingivectomy procedure to prevent future gum damage as well as give your dentist easier access to the teeth for cleaning. Your dentist will recommend gingivectomy if you have gum recession from:
