Gingivectomy - Precision Gum Reshaping for Oral Health

Gingivectomy at Jenkins Dental is a surgical procedure to remove excess gum tissue. This treatment is often used to treat gum disease or to improve the appearance of a "gummy" smile.


What Is Gingivectomy and When Is It Performed?

Gingivectomy involves the careful removal of diseased or excessive gum tissue. It's typically performed when gum disease has caused the gums to become swollen or when excess gum tissue covers too much of the teeth.

How Is Gingivectomy Carried Out?

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Diseased or excess gum tissue is removed, and the remaining gums are reshaped to fit more tightly around the teeth, enhancing both oral health and aesthetics.

What Are the Benefits of Gingivectomy?

Benefits include improved gum health, reduced periodontal pockets, and a more aesthetically pleasing gum line. It can also help in the prevention of future gum disease.

How to Care for Your Gums After a Gingivectomy?

Post-operative care involves gentle brushing, avoiding certain foods, and using prescribed mouth rinses. We provide detailed aftercare instructions for optimal healing.
