When is gingivectomy indicated?

Gingivectomy may be indicated in the following cases:

  • Idiopathic gingival hyperplasia (or gingival fibrosis) of unknown cause.
  • Gingival dysplasia that interferes with tooth structure.
  • Gingival hypertrophy caused by certain medications such as cyclosporine, phenytoins, and dihydropyridines.
  • Periodontitis (severe gum infection).

If your gums are receding, your doctor may recommend gum grafting surgery.

Types of gingivectomy in Turkey

Depending on the purpose of the procedure, different gingivectomy techniques can be distinguished:

  • Scalpel gingivectomy: This is the traditional technique, using a scalpel to remove the gum.
  • Laser gingivectomy: This technique uses a laser to vaporize the gum tissue. It has the advantage of being more precise and less invasive, limiting bleeding and promoting healing.

Before planning a gingivectomy, it's important to consult a qualified dentist or periodontist to discuss the various treatment options, benefits, and potential risks.

Scalpel gingivectomy procedure in Turkey

Gingivectomy is performed under local anesthesia of the gingiva. Using a periodontal probe, the dentist takes measurements to determine the depth of the bleeding gum pockets (periodontitis) and the size of the excess gum (gingival hyperplasia).

Next, the dentist uses an angled blade to make incisions along a line parallel to the bleeding areas. The incision is made along a continuous line in the gum.

Finally, the dentist sutures the gum at the level of the taste buds.

Complications after Gingivectomy

As with any surgery, postoperative complications and pain may occur.

After a gingivectomy, the patient may experience some short- and medium-term complications, including

  • Gum bleeding or bruising.
  • Significant pain.
  • Bone exposure.
  • Poor healing.
  • Increased tooth sensitivity.
  • Or the risk of cosmetic damage.
