Dear lybrate-user, inflammatory gum enlargement in response to braces is a well know fact. It often develops from poor hygiene maintenance during therapy. Gingivectomy (gum surgery
) is a safe and the only option in cases of excessive gingival enlargement. The gums in extreme cases grow around the bracket and the wire both making treatment impossible. Please feel free to undergo the procedure under the hands of a skilled oral surgeon/periodontist. Hope you find this helpful.
