Enjoy Optimal Oral Health with Advanced Gum Treatments

Dental care is not just about teeth. Maintaining the health of the gum is equally important. Pinkish, undamaged gum is vital for oral health. Unhealthy and diseased gums can cause dental cavities and bad breath. Correct diagnosis and treatment at the right time by a learned periodontist can stop gum diseases from spreading further. Smilecare Dental Hospital is one of the leading names in Hyderabad when it comes to advanced gum treatments and we also have in-house gum specialists.

The gum treatments offered at our facility are listed below.


Curettage and Root Planning:

Curettage and root planning are essential periodontal therapy for curing gum infections. If not treated, gum infection can lead to loss of teeth.

This treatment prevents gum infection from weakening the teeth and jawbones around it. In the curettage procedure, the inflamed part of gum tissue is removed from the side of periodontal pockets.

Curettage eliminates subgingival deposits, helps in gingival shrinkage, and promotes new connective tissue attachment.

The root planning procedure is used for smoothening rough spots at the root of teeth structure. It removes the calculus deposits.

If root planning is not done, the rough spots at the root will accumulate harmful bacteria that cause gum infection.


Periodontists often recommend gingivectomy for severe gum disease or periodontitis.

Gum infection can make the gum tissue detach from teeth, creating pockets. Such deep pockets collect bacteria and plaque, which are hard to clean without a gingivectomy.

At advanced dental facilities, a laser is used for minimally invasive gingivectomy. The use of a laser reduces the bleeding and quickens the healing process

A gingivectomy removes the infected gum tissue around the patient’s teeth

This treatment heals gum disease before it damages the bone supporting the teeth' structure

It also helps in removing the pockets formed between the teeth and gum

In this procedure, local anesthetic is applied to numb the gum first, so patients don’t feel any pain or discomfort.

Gingivectomy is traditionally done using a scalpel

Crown Lengthening:

Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure by qualified periodontists to reshape the structure of gums and expose more tooth surfaces.

This procedure is done to enhance the size of teeth above the gum line

When a tooth is decayed, crown lengthening is conducted to increase the size of the visible tooth for performing restorative dental procedures

It is also a corrective treatment for a gummy smile.

Crown lengthening has to be performed under local anesthesia.

The existing gum area is contoured and given a better shape

Crown Lengthening:

Smilecare Dental Hospital has gained eminence by offering a vast range of highly effective gum treatments with precision. We have renowned periodontist Dr. Vijaya, M.D.S., to take care of your gums. We are among the few dental facilities with expertise in laser gum treatment in Hyderabad.

Cost of Laser dentistry:

The cost of laser dentistry can vary widely depending on a number of factors, such as the type of laser used, the specific procedure being performed, and the geographic location of the laser dental clinic. In general, laser dentistry tends to be more expensive than traditional dental treatments due to the high cost of the equipment and the specialized training required for dentists to use lasers safely and effectively.
