Gingivectomy / Gingivoplasty

During gingivectomy and gingivoplasty, gum tissue is removed. This can alleviate swollen gums and reduce the appearance of a “gummy” smile, as well as reduce areas where plaque can get stuck.

The physicians will attempt to treat casualties at the scene and will only transport them to hospital if it is deemed necessary. If patients are transported to hospital, they are more likely to go straight to a ward rather than to an emergency department. Countries that use this model include Austria, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, Spain, Brazil and Chile.

While a gingivectomy removes gum tissue that is unhealthy or diseased, a gingivoplasty contours gum tissue and is usually performed for aesthetic reasons. At Miracle Dental, our expert team can determine your specific needs for gingivectomy or gingivoplasty and create a customized treatment plan for you.

Gingivectomy vs Gingivoplasty

The two processes differ a little. A gingivectomy is a procedure used to remove infected gum tissue that is around a gum pocket. Usually, a Gingivoplasty operation is done to remodel gum tissues that are otherwise healthy and it is also performed to restructure gum tissue, typically for cosmetic purposes. But it’s uncommon to carry out one without the other. However, a receding gums gingivoplasty is the ultimate method to treat severe gum problems. 

Dentists perform Gingivectomy and Gingivoplasty surgeries using a low-frequency laser or surgical scalpel. During both procedures, a local anesthetic is used to keep patients at ease. The affected region is cleansed with antibacterial rinses after the diseased tissue has been cut away and stitched back into place in and around the teeth.

After the treatment is finished, the teeth, gums, and surgical dressing are put. During the course of the next week, while the gums continue to heal, this dressing is retained in place. Most likely, your doctor would advise you to use an antimicrobial mouthwash to aid in the healing process.
