A gingivectomy is usually performed to remove or reduce excess or loose gum tissue due to an inherited trait. This can also occur during orthodontic treatment or as the result of an adverse reaction to medication.

The Procedure

Dr. Lane utilizes advanced technology to perform the gingivectomy with a laser. This technique offers superior results and much more rapid healing compared to traditional techniques that utilize scalpels.

After the Procedure

Our office will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your mouth as you heal. We will review appropriate foods to eat and how to clean the treated areas.
