According to the consultation, gingivectomy
was performed under oxygen delivery with a standard nasal cannula.
Following this, gingivectomy
was performed in the mandibular anterior sextant (Figure 7) and maxillary right posterior sextant at different scheduled appointments.

The lesion was initially believed to be an abscess, but this was ruled out and the tissue was removed by gingivectomy
. The lesion recurred three times between March 1988 and October 1988.
Several therapeutic modalities have been proposed for the correction of gummy smile, among them: gingivectomy
or gingivoplasty (2, 3, 5-7), myectomy (6, 8) and orthognathic surgery (6, 8, 9); and the last two procedures are more invasive and associated with high morbidity (6).
Before beginning restorative treatment, gingivectomy
was found to be suitable for designing the esthetic appearance of the teeth.

The soft tissue dental laser segment dominated the market, owing to the increased number of cases of gingivectomy
and periodontal diseases, among others.
is ideal where gingival enlargement is confined to a limited area, usually fewer than 6 teeth.
Although not very widely reported in the international literature several indications for laser use are given [Olivi et al., 2009]: tooth margin preparation, indirect or direct pulp capping, decontamination of infected root canals, treatment of soft tissue defects (after luxation), micro-gingival surgery, gingivectomy
and surgical cutting (to remove a tooth fragment).
For example, more power is needed for a gingivectomy
as an alternative treatment for periodontal pocket reduction.
