Poor oral health can undoubtedly impact our overall health. For example, if left untreated, gum disease can cause health issues like diabetes, stroke, heart disease, etc. Besides, severe gum inflammation can lead to tooth and bone loss. At Arden Dental care, our dental experts help combat gum disease and maintain our patient's oral health with various dental procedures.
Gingivectomy surgery removes and reshapes a part of the seriously diseased gum and is mostly recommended before the gum disease affects the tooth's supporting bone. This surgery can benefit those who have loose gums that are pulled away from the neighboring tooth. During the gingivectomy procedure, the loosened gums are reattached using sutures.
Gingivectomy involves the removal of excess gum or gingiva surgically and is used to treat damaged gums, deep gum pockets, or the presence of excess gum.
Here are the major cases when a dentist recommends gingivectomy:
For patients suffering from gum disease or infection, a gingivectomy procedure can help prevent additional damage to the gum and eventual tooth loss that may happen when left untreated.
Gingivectomies can benefit people in the following ways:
Gingivoplasty is a surgical process that involves reshaping the appearance of the patient's gums for cosmetic reasons. Also called gum recontouring or gum contouring, the procedure helps increase the length of the patient's front teeth to improve the aesthetics of the teeth.
Gingivoplasty and bone recontouring can help the placement of a crown for teeth that are decayed or broken near the gum line. This procedure can be done individually, during, or succeeding a gingivectomy or a gum graft.
