Often, after the gum or orthodontic treatment may be necessary to eliminate external defects of the gums - such as for example the lowering, uplifting, or uneven distribution of the gum on the dentition, which significantly affects the aesthetic of the smile. In this case, Oral Surgeons in Colorado recommend gingivoplasty. Gingivoplasty - an operation which is based on the removal or formation of gum tissues. Gingivoplasty is performed under local anesthesia. During the operation, the surgeon makes a few incisions in the gums, which help to form gingival flaps. Then he moves gingival flaps on the targeted area and fixes them on the new place with sutures.
