Gingivoplasty refers to the surgical removal of gum tissue and it is a special procedure that is used to reshape healthy gum tissue to support the teeth in a better way. However a periodontist usually specializes in treating all the gum disorders by giving the right gum treatment. In order to improve the aesthetics of a patient's smile, the dentist performs a procedure called gingivoplasty. In this procedure the dentist treats the excessive or asymmetrical gum tissue in the mouth that is adding discomfort to the patient. Along with this there is also a procedure called Gingivectomy that is developed to remove overgrown gum tissues and improve the appearance of the gums. The removal of gums can be for two reasons such as when the gaps or pockets have formed between the teeth and gums, it can trap all the bits of food and bacteria making it very difficult to keep that area clean without causing any type of gum infection. If the pockets involve only soft tissues it can be removed by gingivectomy, which is the trimming of the gums. Secondly when there is too much gum tissue around the teeth people usually do not like the way it looks and thus want it removed. This can also make the teeth and gums difficult to keep clean and further this condition can interfere with the process of chewing and speech as well. Gingivoplasty reshapes the gums to make them look natural and can also be done during or after a gingivectomy.
