Originally used as a treatment for periodontal disease, gingivectomies are used today to improve gum appearance and to remove gum tissue that has become overgrown. Zara Dental Services in Houston offers affordable gingivectomies that we suggest performing in response to two oral problems: (1) soft tissue pockets found between the gums and the teeth that are a nesting ground for bacterial colonies and (2) excess gum tissue surrounding the teeth, which can be both aesthetically unpleasant and an impediment to proper chewing and speech.
The first step in a gingivectomy is a thorough and proper tooth cleaning. This will remove any tartar build-up and ensure that your teeth are free from plaque. Next, you will receive a local anesthetic, and your highly trained and qualified Zara dentist will remove the gum tissue using specialized scalpels. Depending on how much tissue is being removed, the procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to a couple of hours. As always, your friendly staff at Zara Dental will make sure that you have a complete understanding of what to expect throughout the treatment process.
Following the procedure, you will need to be on a soft food diet for approximately ten days, and it is highly important that your mouth remains clean during the healing period.
Cost of your gingivectomy may usually be covered by your dental insurance or extended dental coverage. However if you don’t have insurance or If you are looking for more information about the cost of a specific service, please contact one of our expert Treatment Coordinators for help. They can help with putting together an affordable payment plan so you can get the dental treatment that you need.
