At Quince Orchard Dental Specialists, we believe that a healthy mouth translates to a healthy life. Our practice centers around the provision of high quality, professional and personalized dental services from our friendly, competent dentists. Whether you’re a child, teenager or an adult, you need strong, healthy teeth to chew your food, speak and smile. We are here to take care of your best feature, your teeth, whether natural or synthetic.
Periodontics is the branch of our dental practice that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of problems that affect the gums and other supporting tissues of the teeth, and the placement of dental implants. Our qualified and experienced periodontist and support staff are here to help you transform your smile. One of the methods that we use to get you the healthy mouth you deserve is a Gingivectomy. Gingivectomy (also known as flap surgery), is the surgical procedure that ultimately removes gingiva (gum tissue) that has been diseased to get rid of the pockets between the gum and the teeth.
If gum disease is particularly bad in an area of the mouth a gingivectomy or plasty may be performed to heal the effects of periodontal disease or to correct a gum condition involving the structures around the teeth. It is one of a few procedures that can help reverse periodontal issues.
Gingivectomy is the total removal of a portion of gingiva (gum) from in and around a tooth or teeth in order to treat gum disease or to lengthen the height or width of a tooth or a section of teeth. A gingivoplasty is different than a gingivectomy in that it only involves a partial removal of the gums.
The aim of our periodontic practice is to optimize the health and function of not just your teeth but the area surrounding your teeth, i.e. your jaw and gums. Our periodontist and our highly trained dental team are dedicated to ensuring that you have the best periodontal care in the most comfortable setting. Through the use of advanced and appropriate dental technology, we guarantee the highest level of periodontal treatment and diagnostics, to produce the finest, most stable results. We encourage you to come in to our office to find out how we can help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve.
