Gingivectomy Tunisia or Gingivoplasty is a specialty of dental surgery that focuses on the treatment of gums. It consists of removing excess gum tissue in order to improve the appearance of your gums and give you a beautiful smile.
Cosmetic gingivectomy is for people who suffer from overly visible or unusually shaped gums or persistent periodontal disease. It is usually indicated in the following cases:
Treatment of periodontitis, especially when the results of dental curettage are unsatisfactory.
Treatment of gingival hyperplasia (resulting from medication for high blood pressure or epilepsy). Sometimes one or more teeth are completely covered by gum tissue, and a gingivectomy is required to correct this problem.
Correction of a gummy smile, especially when the upper gums are abnormally exposed.
A distinction must be made between :
Gingivectomy: removal of excess gum tissue.
Gingivoplasty: reshaping the gums to give them a more natural appearance. Although often performed alone, gingivoplasty can also be combined with a gingivectomy or a gum graft.
