Procedure of Aesthetic Gingivoplasty with Laser
After using a local anesthetic, so that the patient does not feel pain, we begin to surgically remove with the laser, part of the gingiva that is not needed, until the gum reaches the desired point. This procedure is quick without tiredness or pain. In the end we add surgical cement to the point where the surgery was done for protection and better healing.
It takes about 10-14 days for the scar to heal, and the surgical cement we use reduces pain and helps to the mastication of food.
After removing the cement, the gingiva is growing to the desired point, also with this procedure we have helped to eliminate most of the pathogenic microorganisms while at the same time achieving aseptic conditions.
