What patients can expect before, during, and after their gum contouring procedure
Gum contouring is often done for patients who have had damage to their gum tissue or who are unhappy with the amount of gum tissue around their teeth. Patients can have this treatment performed by Dr. Titania Tong. Central, Hong Kong patients ask what they can expect before, during, and after the procedure.
Before patients undergo gum contouring, it needs to be determined if they are appropriate candidates for the service. Appropriate candidates are individuals who have healthy mouths and are ready to make a change. Patients with “gummy smiles” or unusual gum lines often request this procedure. After the consultation, patients schedule their treatment.
The treatment is done with proper anesthetics. Dr. Titania Tong may manually address the gum line contours or may use laser devices. Patients are comfortable during their treatment and do not experience pain.
Patients are given specific aftercare instructions following their gum contouring procedure. Patients experience minimal discomfort following their treatment and will find that the results are quickly enjoyed after the initial healing process. Patients are given instructions on how to brush and floss to keep the mouth clean while allowing the soft tissues to heal properly.
