Gingivectomy

For patients who need surgery for severe gum disease that cannot be cured with antibiotics or other treatment methods, Dr. Simpson will perform a gingivectomy using laser dentistry.

A gingivectomy is a surgical procedure that removes and reshapes loose, diseased gum tissue to get rid of pockets between the teeth and gums. After a gingivectomy, it will often be easier for patients to keep their teeth and gums clean.
