What is gingivectomy?

Gingivectomy is dental procedure that allows the dentist to remove a portion of the patient's gum area when it's too grown or has infections in it.
It is both used as a cosmetic procedure and a medical procedure to cure things such as:

  • Plaque.
  • Gingivitis.
  • Chronic periodontitis.
  • Aggressive periodontitis.
  • Necrotizing periodontal diseases.
  • Thrush.

If you have any of these gum diseases your dentils will sure be recommending the Gingivectomy procedure and may even recommend it if you have the symptoms for those diseases to prevent it from progressing.

Gingivectomy is also used as a cosmetic treatment.

Many people have overgrowing gum that covers most of their teeth making their gum absolvable more when ever they smile, which can easily make someone fee l self-conscious.

A gingivectomy is also very necessary in the case of gum tissue pulling away from teeth creating deep pockets, these pockets make cleaning plaque and calculus very hard which can lead to infections in some cases.

Gingivectomy is basically the surgical reshaping of gum tissue, it helps it make it look way better when they have an unusual shape.

What are the different types of gingivectomy?

It's not so much so as types as it is the patient's intentions and wants, you can either get gingivectomy for medical reasons or for cometic reason.

Medical gingivectomy

If your doctor sees that you have gum disease then they will be recommending this procedure to either battle it before it evolves or to remove it.

The dentist may also recommend gingivectomy if you want your teeth cleaned, it will make the cleaning process much easier.

Gum disease such as gingivitis willleade to some complications such as:

  • Bacteria.
  • Infections.
  • Plaque.
  • Creation of tartar.

These might be minor but they can lead to much worse damage.

Elective gingivectomy

The gingivectomy procedure can be done for cosmetic reasons, and it's completely optional.
Some people do feel self-conscious about their gum when it has an unusual form or if others kept pointing it out.
The doctor may not recommend the procedure if there is a risk to your well being or a risk of making some more damage.
You will need to consult with your dentist on the matter and have at least one session to examine your gum.

What happens during the procedure?

Naturally before any procedure begins the dentist will have to make a full check up on your teeth, gum and overall mouth.
The gingivectomy procedure doesn't take that long, it takes between 30 and 60 minutes depending on how much of the gum the dentist is willing to take out.

If you are going to have a single tooth processed then, it would only take one session, however if it's a major gum removal then you will have to make several visits; the dentist may also decide to let one area heal before moving to the next which will mean that you will have to make more visits.
The procedure is simple and takes some steps.
The dentist will start by injecting local anesthetic into your gum to help numb the area.
Then they will use a scalpel or a laser tool to carefully cut away pieces of gum tissue, this procedure is called "soft tissue incision", during this procedure your dentist will be keeping a suction tool in your mouth to remove excess saliva.
As soon as the gum, tissue has been cut away your dentist will use the laser tool to remove any remaining tissue and shape up the gumline.
After the shaping is complete, the doctor will finish up the procedure by applying a soft putty-like substance and bandages on the area to keep it from harm while it heals.

How will the recovery from gingivectomy go?

The first hours after the procedure

The recovery is usually easy and fast, after the procedure it's kinda rare to have any sort of complications.
As soon as the operation is over you should be able to go home right away, you won't need someone to drive yu since the dentist will only use local anesthesia, but if you want to be safer that is also very advisable.
You will need to get some pain killer; the pain will not hit you right away but as the numbing from the anesthetic wears off the pain starts to peak slowly.
Your doctor will describe you some medication to manage the pain.
You may also experience some gum bleeding for a few days so you will need to keep replacing the bandages until the bleeding stops.
You will have to keep replacing the dressings until your dentist clears you to have your gum exposed again.
The bandage changing procedure should be well explained by your dentist, if they didn't then you should call them to know more about the procedure.

The first few days after the procedure

It's very common to have some jaw pain, so you will have to switch to a soft food diet to keep from damaging your gum, some soft foods that we recommend are:

  • Bananas.
  • Baked Apples.
  • Broccoli – steamed soft.
  • Cheese.
  • Cake.
  • Custard.
  • Fish.
  • Frozen Yogurt.
  • Ground Turkey.
  • Oatmeal.
  • Rice.


After a week of the operation, the pain should start to faint away; you should stay in touch with you dentist to keep up with the healing process.
You should brush and floss your teeth twice a day and avoid smoking and foods that contain a lot of sugar.
If you feel any discomfort like a fever, bleeding that won't stop, or an unusual pus then you should contact your doctor right away to avoid the chance of getting an infection.
