At Apex Dentistry, we understand the importance of a healthy and aesthetically pleasing smile. Gingivectomy is a specialized dental procedure we offer, aimed at improving the appearance and health of your gums. Led by Dr. Mojgan Salehi, our team is dedicated to providing expert gingivectomy services with precision, skill, and compassion.

Understanding Gingivectomy

Gingivectomy is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess gum tissue, also known as gingiva, to improve the appearance of your smile or address certain oral health issues. This procedure may be performed for cosmetic reasons, such as reducing the appearance of a gummy smile, or for functional reasons, such as treating gum disease or creating better access for restorative dental work.

Indications for Gingivectomy

Cosmetic Concerns: Excessive gum tissue can make your teeth appear short or disproportionate, leading to a gummy smile. Gingivectomy can help create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing smile by reshaping the gum line and exposing more of the tooth’s surface.

Gum Disease Treatment: Gingivectomy may be recommended as part of the treatment for gum disease, particularly in cases of severe periodontitis where pockets of bacteria have formed deep within the gum tissue. Removing the infected gum tissue can help eliminate bacteria and promote healing.

Restorative Needs: In cases where gum tissue obstructs access to teeth that require restorative dental work, such as crowns or fillings, gingivectomy may be performed to create better visibility and access for the dentist.
