Gingivectomy is a surgical procedure of leveling and correcting the gingiva (gum tissue) at the neck of the teeth and consists in gum tissue removal.
Gingivectomy can be performed for orthodontic or aesthetic reasons.
At Marelić orthodontic clinic the requirement for a good orthodontic treatment is a correct application of dental brackets. If the surface of the teeth, for some reason, does not provide sufficient amount of space for an ideal placement of the bracket, the patient is suggested gingivectomy as a quick and painless solution.
When it comes to front teeth, gingivectomy is usually performed after the removal of orthodontic braces, during a stage when we try to render the smiles of our patients as perfect as possible with final corrections.
At Marelić orthodontic clinic gingivectomy is performed respecting the highest and most modern standards, using a laser that reduces the pain to minimum and enables a quick and simple recovery. Before the procedure patient is given local anesthesia, without the use of needle to completely eliminate any discomfort. The procedure is quick and simple and the results are excellent.
iLase is a dental laser that we use at Marelić orthodontic clinic. It is a so called ‘soft’ laser which means that it used mainly in procedures done on the soft tissue of the oral cavity (gingiva and dental supporting structures tissue, mucosal tissue of the cheeks, palate, tongue and sublingual area and lips) but is also used on pulp (root of the tooth) and for tooth whitening.
Area of application of this kind of laser is very vast. From gingival (gums) procedures such as gingivoplasty (shaping the gum line at the neck of the teeth) to supporting the healing process of the mucosal tissue surrounding dental implants.
Hello! I'm Martina Kauzlarić, I came to Doctor Marelić for the first time in June 2011 with a disastrous bite. (And by the way: before that I wore mobile braces for 9 years!!! After the termination of the therapy my teeth are completely rearranged) After attaching the braces, a year later, my teeth looked better than ever!!! And they still do today (in 2015). Greetings and recommendations,
We came by recommendation in Dr. Marelić’s practice. The recommendation proved to be excellent. One daughter had her teeth straightened in a year and we were super happy with the service and results. Now we are in therapy with the younger daughter, and it is enough of a reference. When we solve the children we’ll go further...
My experience with Marelić orthodontic clinic is very positive. The whole treatment, from attaching the braces up to the removal, lasted 13 months, and the result is outstanding, I can finally laugh relaxed, without covering the teeth with my hand. The whole team is very relaxed and positive, yet thorough and devoted to their work.
