FAQ

Frequent
Questions

Gingivectomy is a procedure in which excess gum tissue is surgically removed. It is used to treat hypertrophic gums or when there are deep periodontal pockets that do not respond to non-surgical treatments. The objective is to improve the aesthetics of the smile and facilitate better oral hygiene.

During a gingivectomy, local anesthesia is used to ensure your comfort. The excess gingival tissue is then carefully removed with a dental laser or scalpel. After the procedure, the gum is sutured and you will be provided with post-operative care instructions for proper healing.

Local anesthesia is used during the procedure to minimize any discomfort or pain. You may feel slight discomfort or tenderness after the procedure, but you will be prescribed medication to control the pain and given instructions for a comfortable recovery.

Recovery time can vary, but it generally takes a few days for the gums to completely heal after a gingivectomy. During this period, you will be provided with oral care instructions and follow-up appointments will be scheduled to evaluate your progress and ensure a successful recovery.

Gingivectomy can provide several benefits, such as a more aesthetic smile, reduction of periodontal pockets, improved oral hygiene, and prevention of periodontal diseases. It can also allow better access to teeth and make it easier to place dental restorations.
