hello doctor I want to ask I have teeth that are rarely in the middle because my gums are long so the doctor recommends me to cut the gums whether the gum that has been cut can grow back ..?

1 Answer:

Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com


Surgery on the gums is usually called the reduction of the tooth pocket is a procedure used to remove the gums which usually occurs when plaque is difficult to remove with a procedure usually called scaling. The procedure is to separate the gums from the teeth and then there is a tissue that is cut about 5 to 7 mm so that afterwards it can be cleaned. Afterwards the gums will be sewn back so that the gum tissue will surround the teeth more tightly. This aims to prevent the gums from growing back and become a buildup of dirt again.


Usually this is done on someone who has inflammation in a fairly severe gum area called periodonitis. Symptoms usually are

The gums look swollen
Feels painful
Gums bleed easily

To do this you should consult with your dentist. So far, maintain good dental health, that is

Brush your teeth regularly at least 2 times a day ie after breakfast and before going to bed at night
Choose a soft brush and toothpaste according to the type of teeth
Gargle after eating to avoid dirt accumulating around the teeth


Thus the information we can convey. Thank you
