gingivectomy

Services

When it comes to oral health, it’s all too often that we ignore our gums. Just think: Did you floss this morning? What about last night? A gum infection like gingivitis can cause serious health concerns and has been linked to high blood pressure, pneumonia, and even heart disease when left unchecked. In some cases, our dentist may recommend a gingivectomy to help treat your gums and restore your oral health.

WHAT IS GINGIVITIS?

Gingivitis is one of the early forms of gum disease. It is an infection of the gums that’s caused by bacteria building up underneath the gum line. While brushing regularly can usually keep bacteria at bay, certain factors like smoking tobacco, genetics, and even some medications can increase your risk of developing gingivitis.

HOW CAN A GINGIVECTOMY HELP?

When gum tissue becomes inflamed or damaged due to gum disease, a gingivectomy removes infected gum tissue and reshapes the gum line. Depending on your individual case, this may take up to one or several sessions to complete. By the end of your treatment, you will have a much healthier smile.

SYMPTOMS OF GINGIVITIS

  • Inflamed or Painful Gums
  • Receding Gums
  • Red or Swollen Gums
  • Bleeding
  • Loose Teeth
  • Persistent Bad Breath
