Gingivectomy / Gingivoplasty

Gingivectomy / Gingivoplasty

A form of treatment that we frequently apply to our patients is called gingivectomy/gingivoplasty. Gingivectomy is a surgical removal procedure that we apply on the gingival tissue. Our gingivoplasty procedure is expressed as the shaping of the gingival tissues around the teeth. Gingivectomy and gingivoplasty procedures are performed by our periodonist physicians who are experts in the field of dental surrounding tissues and gingival diseases.

Why is Gingivoplasty and Gingivectomy Applied?

Gingivectomy and gingivoplasty are effective methods used for the treatment of gum diseases. The main reasons why we prefer these methods are primarily the cleaning process between the teeth and gums. Let us explain the gingivectomy/gingivoplasty treatments separately to you.

Residues and bacteria between the teeth and gums are easily and easily removed by gingivectomy. Gingivectomy is a technique applied for the treatment of gingival problems. Recently, people resort to this procedure due to aesthetic concerns. It is possible to encounter gingival problems or gingival excess on many patients, but this is a great risk factor for the cleaning of oral and gingival health. In addition, substances such as drugs used by our patients also cause a large growth on the gums.

With gingivoplasty, which is another application, the gums easily obtain a natural appearance. In line with the procedures we perform, we easily solve problems such as dental disorders due to disease or genetic factors. The gingivoplasty method, which we generally prefer, is a method that we attach great importance to. However, in some exceptional cases, it may need to be used after gingivectomy.

Gingivoplasty and Gingivectomy Treatment

First of all, there are many reasons that will require gingivectomy/gingivoplasty treatment. Various procedures are applied and reported to ensure oral hygiene of our patients before the procedure. Our operations include applications such as dental calculus cleaning. Electrosurgical instruments can be used in these procedures, which are performed with the help of hand tools, if necessary.

Within the treatment process, first of all, local anesthesia is applied for our patients and the procedure is started. Depending on the patient’s condition, gingivectomy can be a short-term service option as well as a long-term procedure. This will be proportional to the amount of tissue removed. Our gingivoplasty procedure is completed in a few minutes on average.

After Gingivectomy/Gingivoplasty Treatment

After our gingivectomy and gingivoplasty treatment process, people need to be careful about some issues. After gingivectomy gingival treatment, a bandage is worn to protect the mouth of the patients. This bandage stays on the gums of the patients for the first 10 days. In this process, we express to our patients that they should consume soft foods. It is normal to experience some pain, in this case we recommend the use of painkillers and mouthwash with chlorhexidine.

It is necessary to pay attention to oral care until the healing process occurs after the treatment. After the surgical procedure, patients should not brush their teeth until the current bandage is removed. Bleeding on the gums is considered normal until full healing occurs.

As you can see, our clinic offers you permanent solutions with gingivectomy/gingivoplasty treatment methods. Do not hesitate to consult us for all problems related to your gums or teeth.
