Gingivectomy with Laser

Deer Park, Pasadena Texas Dentist: Gingivectomy

A Gingivectomy is a procedure that removes excess tissue from around the teeth.  Dr. Nugent uses a laser to perform the tissue removal as the laser is more gentle to the tissue then a scalpel blade.  When excess tissue is around the teeth it makes the teeth look short and non-proportional. By removing the extra tissue the teeth are more cosmetic.
