A good smile is not only the correct location and whiteness of the teeth but also important is their "frame" - our gums. The change in the configuration of the gums can occur for various reasons: due to both congenital and acquired defects. Gingivoplasty - a surgical procedure aimed at improving the structure and aesthetics of periodontal tissues - will help to solve the problem of incorrect gum contour. In the course of such surgical correction, excess tissue can be removed or augmented.

If you are looking for a place to perform gum plastic surgery in Kyiv - contact Dobrobut Dental Clinic. Our specialists use only modern equipment and perform operations to correct the contour of the gums of any complexity. You can find out the full list of our services and their cost on the website.

Indications for gingivoplasty:

  • Asymmetry and other structural inequalities of the gingival row.
  • "Shark smile" - occurs when the gums close the crown of the teeth.
  • The recession of gingival tissues is caused by gingivitis, periodontitis, or periodontitis.
  • Formation of a beautiful gingival margin during implantation or bone grafting.
  • Deep periodontal pockets.
  • Restoration of the aesthetics of the oral cavity after various operations and injuries.


  • acute infectious diseases;
  • chronic diseases in the stage of decompensation;
  • malignant neoplasms;
  • impaired blood clotting;
  • individual intolerance of anesthesia;
  • immunodeficiency.

Relative constraints are:

  • inflammatory gum disease in the acute phase;
  • carious lesions of the teeth;
  • stomatitis.

In the presence of these pathological processes, the specialist prescribes a course of treatment, and only after the elimination of relative contraindications will conduct gingivoplasty.

The course of the operation

The operation is performed after a thorough examination, study of the anamnesis. The oral cavity is disinfected with antiseptics. Basically, surgical correction is performed under local anesthesia, but in some cases can be performed under conduction anesthesia with blockade of the maxillary or mandibular nerve. An incision of the mucous membrane is made, and then, depending on the chosen tactics and the purpose of gingivoplasty, the following manipulations are performed:

  • flap displacement;
  • mucosal transplantation;
  • excision of hypertrophied soft tissues.

Finally, the new shape of the gingival margin is fixed with small sutures.
In the postoperative period it will be necessary to follow several recommendations:

  • avoid spicy, sour, hot food;
  • to give up smoking and alcohol;
  • not to perform heavy physical work;
  • monitor oral hygiene.
