Gingivectomy Sculpting Risks
Although minor in comparison to many other dental procedures, gingival sculpting is still classified as surgery, so it’s important that you discuss and possible risks that might apply to you before undergoing the treatment. Not to worry though, the gingivectomy procedure is performed under local anesthetic and the risks involved are minimal.
It is highly uncommon for patients to experience infection within the areas of treatment. However, in rare cases infection may occur. Other rarities include slight discomfort and minor swelling following the procedure.
