Gummy smile design
The gummy smile design can be defined by the excessive exposure of the gum during the smile, the patients consider it unattractive and sometimes this excess gum covers so much the teeth that they look small. Today there are tools available that can be performed for the surgical removal of excess gum.
As this procedure is very simple and minimally invasive, it is also performed under local anesthesia, obtaining immediate results.
And thus show off a perfect smile that was hidden under the gum.
The post-extraction graft is a surgical procedure in which it is taken care that the bone that supported a tooth and that had to be extracted, is maintained with its height and width dimensions and does not collapse when a tooth is extracted. This normal healing process in many cases results in an exaggerated flattening that causes the bone to shrink in height and width and makes the process of putting a prosthesis unsightly and leaving very large or very thick teeth.
In the past, the fact of removing teeth without preventing bone contraction harmed patients since their bone was so reabsorbed that no type of prosthesis could be placed.
Post extraction grafting is the best bone prevention treatment when deciding to extract a tooth.
Gingivectomy is a surgical technique that is used when there are gingival anomalies, among them we have gingival enlargement, which is the increase in volume of the gum in any of its areas, this condition has a direct impact on the oral health of the patient, since that in general this enlarged gums is frequently inflamed and dental plaque accumulates which causes bad breath.
Dental demand is generally when there are episodes of pain or when aesthetics are compromised, in the case of gingival enlargement it can be asymptomatic, however, excessive gum growth causes negative structural changes for the harmony of the smile.
