A gingivectomy in Ware, Massachusetts is an advanced treatment for gum disease. If other treatments, such as medication and deep cleaning methods, prove unsuccessful, we may suggest a gingivectomy to remove infected gum tissue and minimize the pockets between your teeth and gums where bacteria and infection linger. Dr. Navkiran Dhillon, our skilled dentist, and our entire dental team take the health of your smile very seriously, and we strive to provide all of the treatments you and your family need. Does a gingivectomy hurt? A gingivectomy is a fairly simple treatment that does not need to cause a lot of pain when performed correctly. We will use local anesthesia to numb the area we will be working on. After removing the gum tissue, we will protect your gums by applying protective putty over the gumline. Generally, no more than over-the-counter painkillers are needed to handle any discomfort after the treatment. For more information about gingivectomy and how we can improve your overall oral health, we encourage you to call or visit us at Dhillon Family & Cosmetic Dentistry today. Our dental team looks forward to doing all that is necessary to restore the health of your smile.
