Gingivectomy means cutting the gums. It is applied by cutting the excess areas in the gums. Laser applications can be used as treatment options. Recovery time is minimal after the procedures. This application can also be made to extend the length of the teeth and to provide a smooth symmetry in the teeth.
Before the gingivectomy procedure is applied, a cleaning process is performed on the teeth. After the cleaning process, the teeth are numbed with local anesthesia. After the teeth are numb, the excess gums are removed by scalpel or laser method. After shaping the gums, a paste that should remain for 5 days is placed.

Gingivitis is the beginning of gum disease. The gums are bleeding, red and enlarged. Gingivitis may not cause much discomfort. Gums that bleed during tooth brushing are generally sensitive. Gingival bleeding and bad breath are symptoms. At this stage, gingival recession and bone loss are not observed. If left untreated, the disease progresses to an advanced stage, Periodontitis, and destroys the gums and bone supporting the teeth.
It is the advanced stage of gum diseases. Along with the other tissues that support the teeth, damage occurs to the alveolar bone surrounding the tooth. There are bleeding gums, inflammatory fluid flow from the gum pocket, swelling of the gums, enlargement, redness, and bad breath. Gingival recession occurs, the teeth may start to shake with bone loss, the teeth are opened, and the teeth are lost in the advanced stage.
Disease starts due to lack of oral care and the formation of tartar as a result, and if smoking is exacerbated. Smoking can suppress gum bleeding. However, it increases the progression of the disease. The disease may not progress at the same rate and severity in every individual. If there is a genetic predisposition to the disease, a rapid destruction may occur. If there is no gum abscess formation, pain may not be observed. Gum diseases are chronic inflammatory conditions that are generally painless.
