In order to have optimal oral health, we have to take good care of our teeth and gums. When we don’t pay close attention to our gums, we can cause the progression of gum disease. If we don’t properly clean and maintain our gum health, gingivitis can take over and cause irritation, bleeding, and even loss of teeth.
Luckily, there are ways to rid the mouth of gingivitis so that gum disease can’t advance. If your gingivitis cannot be cured with scaling and planing, we can perform a gingivectomy to remove diseased gum tissue and get your mouth back to feeling its best.
HOW IT WORKS
With a gingivectomy at Ninth East Dental, in Provo, UT, we remove and reshape loose, diseased gum tissue to reduce the depth of pockets between teeth and gums, which will likely reverse the effects of gum disease.
After just a few weeks, the gums will be completely healed and free of gingivitis so that your smile is healthy and shining.
You shouldn’t have to suffer from the effects of gum disease. At Ninth East Dental, in Provo, UT, we can help you manage – and potentially reverse — the effects of gum disease.
So, don’t be discouraged by your oral health! If your periodontal disease can no longer be cured with scaling or root planing, there is still hope with a gingivectomy. We can help you get your beautiful smile back with bright, healthy gums. Call to schedule an assessment as soon as possible and find relief with our judgement-free team. We’re ready to support your oral health.
