Sample tissue from elsewhere in your mouth is taken and attached to the gums to replace gum tissue that has receded or has been removed due to gum disease. This procedure is often used for cosmetic purposes as well as to treat gum disease because it covers areas where the root is becoming exposed and improves the appearance of the teeth.
Gum recontouring also called Gingivoplasty: It is a procedure done to shape the gums by cutting off the excess gum tissue. It is done to correct a gummy smile, where a lot of gum tissue is seen when a person smiles. Though it is a normal variation it makes people conscious while smiling and can be corrected, by gum contouring. Gum contouring is done to expose more tooth structure for one or all of the teeth.
Gingivectomy and Periodontal surgery are other types of gum surgeries used to treat swollen and diseased gums.
Painless treatment with lasers: At Signatures Smiles, we have the most advanced procedures that use dental lasers to treat gum disease. This is a painless procedure done under local anesthesia and in a single visit.
The cost of gum surgery depends on the severity and type of gum disease, number of teeth involved and cosmetic needs of the patient. Treatment cost of gingivitis is lower than that of periodontal disease. Use of lasers can affect the cost of treatment.
