Gingivectomy or gingivoplasty; are they the same procedure?

Kind of similar: A gingivoplasty intends to reshape the gums around the teeth, creating a more cosmetic or cleanable situation in the mouth. A good example is when veneers are placed on the front teeth. It helps make the teeth the right length. A gingivectomy intends to remove gums that are inflamed or hyperplastic and create on cleanable pocket adjacent to the tooth. Disfigurement is very common, but healthy. ...Read more

After gingivoplasty procedure done, how long before you can eat?

After gingivoplasty procedure done, how long before you can eat?

Soon afterwards: It depends on the extent of the tissue removal. Usually you need to stay on liquids then soft diet for a 4-5 day period. Any wound would fare poorly if food was rubbed into it. This invites bacterial to overgrow the wound. The mouth does not have any properties that make it safer to place food into a surgical site. Laser induced wounds heal much faster than scalpel induced wounds. ...Read more

They : They are both surgical proceedures that cut away the gums and will only look good if your gums are overgrown over your teeth. If your gums are receded or if your teeth are already look long the surgery will not be your best option. Look in the mirror and check if your upper front teeth (and gums) have grown down lower than your side teeth. If that is the case your best option would be orthodontics to intrude those teeth. Invisalign treatment works well for intrusion. ...Read more

How do I find a doctor for gingivoplasty?

How do I find a doctor for gingivoplasty?

Seek laser clinician: After years of using a scalpel for this procedure, I have found that the new fda approved soft tissue lasers, especially those with lens technology, work much better. The wounds heal very fast, with minimum pain and no necessity for periodontal dressing post operatively. Simply asked the office representative if lasers are employed by the doctor. Periodontists specialize in gum therapy. ...Read more

Gingivoplasty - how normal do you look afterwards, if you had receding gums?

Gingivoplasty - how normal do you look afterwards, if you had receding gums?

It depends on extent: A gingivoplasty intends to alter the current look of the gums. I am unaware of any procedure that can overcome general gum recession by lowering gum onto the teeth. In localized areas where clefs exist or loss of attachment occurs gingival grafts, both free and rotated pedicle types work well to overcome loss of attachment provided occlusal trauma is eliminated and excellent hygiene is in place. ...Read more
