Gingivoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping the gums (gingiva) to improve the appearance of the gum line and/or to improve the health of the gums. This procedure is typically performed by a periodontist, a dental specialist who deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth.
Gingivoplasty is typically performed to correct conditions such as:
uneven or irregular gums
gingival recession, which is the exposure of the roots of the teeth due to a loss of gum tissue
gummy smile, which is a condition where excessive gum tissue covers the teeth when smiling
The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia, and may be performed in an outpatient setting. Recovery from the surgery can take several weeks, and patients may experience swelling, pain, and discomfort during this time.
Gingivoplasty is a specialized procedure, which must be performed by a trained and experienced periodontist. The procedure also requires a detailed pre-operative assessment, including X-rays and 3D imaging, to plan the procedure and ensure the best outcome. It’s important to note that after surgery, good oral hygiene and regular professional cleaning are necessary to maintain the health of the gums and prevent recurrence of the condition.
