Gums can pull away from the teeth and create pockets where it then becomes difficult to clean the plaque build-up that occurs. A gingivectomy treatment is necessary when someone has gingivitis or a more serious form of gum disease. The procedure is typically preformed before the gum disease has done any damage to the bone or teeth. This procedure can also enhance the appearance of the gums.
