Gingivectomy is the removal of a part of the gingiva by cutting; usually applied in the form of removing the soft tissue wall in the pocket. Gingivoplasty is the surgical correction of the deformed gingival shape.
The early period of gum disease is called “gingivitis”. Gingivitis is the clinical situation in which only the gingiva is affected from the surrounding tissues of the tooth. Inflammation of the gums by the bacteria in the plaque layer can be shown as the beginning of the disease. During this period, problems such as redness, bleeding and swelling of the gums occur. In addition, in uncomfortable situations such as excessive appearance of the gums, this problem can be eliminated with gingivectomy and gingivoplasty treatment.
