What is a Gingivectomy?
The gingivectomy is currently the most frequent dental surgery carried out in developing nations. The oral surgeon performs this procedure to alter the mouth's gums' appearance. He could do it to treat the structures around the teeth that are affected by gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) or to reverse its effects.
How does it Work?
How does it
In order to eliminate spaces between the gums and teeth, unhealthy gum tissues are cut or reshaped during gingivectomy surgery. Depending on how many inflammatory gum tissues you have, this procedure might take 45 to 60 minutes.
People with severe, advanced gum disease are typically seen to be good candidates for this procedure. Contact us to find out more about the requirements for a gingivectomy procedure.
- First, local anesthesia will be administered to you so that you don’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
- Using a surgical scalpel or laser, the surgeon will remove pieces of damaged gum tissue.
- He could also use a suction device to remove saliva while you wait.
- The surgeon will likely use a dental laser in the subsequent phase to eliminate any leftover inflammatory tissues and reshape the gum line.
- Once the adjustments have been done, a temporary putty will be applied above the gum line to speed gum healing.
The starting cost of Gingivectomy in Riyadh is 1300 SAR (+5% VAT) per session.
Even while you might not experience pain immediately away, it could become more intense or persistent when the numbing wears off a few hours after the treatment.
You should be able to brush your teeth after a gap of 1-2 weeks.
Like many oral surgeries, a gingivectomy should recover reasonably quickly—typically within a week.
