Extension of the clinical tooth crown (gingivectomy)
Gingivectomy is a surgical intervention that removes part of the gums around the teeth. The procedure may be indicated for aesthetic reasons.
For a beautiful smile, in addition to beautiful teeth, the relationship between the gingiva (gums) and the teeth is also very important. When this relationship is disturbed and the gums dominate, the teeth appear small, and a smile “full of gums” is called a Gummy smile. Then gingivectomy is the right solution for correcting the aesthetic defect, and the procedure is performed under local anesthesia and is painless.
When making prosthetic restorations in a situation where there is not enough tooth substance to place a fixed prosthetic restoration (crown or bridge) due to the decay of dental tissue, a procedure for lengthening the clinical tooth crown is performed.
Flap surgery is a method used in the advanced stage of periodontitis. This method removes all changes in the gums. If the bone is resorbed and causes the teeth to wobble, artificial bone can be applied. Treatment of periodontitis with these methods requires the patient’s absolute cooperation in maintenance ideal oral hygiene in order to maintain the achieved result at the best level for as long as possible and parodnotopathy prevented it from progressing.
