A Gingivoplasty is defined as a surgical procedure used to reshape the gums. The procedure is performed by a periodontist, who is a dentist with advanced training to treat gum disorders. These disorders can include treating the healthy gums of a patient who would like to improve their shapes. Most often, a gingivoplasty is performed to enhance the appearance of a patient's smile, especially when there is asymmetrical gum tissue. Some people have a "gummy smile" or an excessive amount of gingiva or gum tissue that they feel is unattractive. A gummy smile could be caused by some medications, trauma, or simply because of your genetic make-up. Additionally, irregular shapes may be the result of previous gum surgery or other dental procedures. To treat this the periodontist will perform a comprehensive exam, recording the areas to be treated and then a thorough cleaning of the teeth to remove all the plaque and tartar will be done before the surgery is scheduled. The gingivoplasty is usually done using local anesthesia to numb the areas of the mouth being treated. Most of these procedures are done using a soft tissue laser to achieve a smooth and even shape of the gums. It can take a few minutes or up to two hours depending on the case. After surgery, the area will be sutured and the periodontist will place a sterile, soft bandage over the treated area to protect the tissue as it heals. You will be sent home with instructions and return for a follow-up visit in a week to 10 days. After the surgery a soft diet should be maintained along with gentle brushing using desensitizing toothpaste.
