What is a Gingivectomy?
A gingivectomy is performed when a patient has severe periodontal or gum disease that has not responded well to scaling and root planning or other periodontal procedures and is a procedure that is typically provided by a doctor. It is important to a patient’s overall health to effectively treat and control gum disease. Gingivectomies are performed to remove diseased gum tissue, and to reduce the depth of pockets between the teeth and gums.
This procedure can also be indicated when an overgrowth of gum tissue has occurred resulting from certain health side-effects, medications, or rapid orthodontic movement.
