In brief: In Office Procedure
This is usually taken care via an in office procedure.
The affected toe is numbed with a local anesthetic and the offending border removed. If the condition permits or requires a permanent correction can be performed via ablation of the cells that produce the nail.

In brief: Matrixectomy
Remove the offending border permanently so there is no regrowth on the side that gets ingrown.
Office procedure with minimal pain and disability.
