Gingivectomy : for whom?
Gingivectomy is a very common dental procedure to remove excess gum tissue. It is also distinguished from gingivoplasty.
The removal of part of the gum is generally indicated in three main cases:
As part of the treatment of a periodontal disease: in particular when periodontal curettage did not give satisfactory results because it was impossible to clean the periodontal pockets thoroughly.
To treat a gingival hyperplasia which is often caused by medication for epilepsy and high blood pressure, this condition may involve one or more teeth which may sometimes be completely covered by the gum.
To correct a gummy smile: when the upper gums are excessively exposed.
How is it performed ?
Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with your dental surgeon so as to examine your dentition (gums, teeth...) and tells you whether you can undergo this treatment or not and this according to your case, then, he will explain you the process of the whole procedure from the beginning to the end and give you recommendations that you must follow for optimal results.
