Gingivectomy

You may need surgery for severe gum disease (periodontitis) if it cannot be cured with antibiotics or root planing and scaling. A gingivectomy removes and reshapes loose, diseased gum (gingiva) tissue to get rid of pockets between the teeth and gums.

Its crucial that we remove the areas of the gums that have pulled away from the base of the teeth,  especially the loose areas around the teeth that are creating deep pockets. These developed pockets can develop plaque buildup overtime leading to damaged bone and gum disease.
