What Is Robotic Gingivectomy Surgery?

Gingivectomy is a surgical procedure dedicated to the removal of excess or overgrown gingiva, which is another term for gum tissue. The commonly used methods are scalpel and laser gingivectomy. Now, however, many doctors have started to turn to robotic gingivectomy surgery.

Recently, however, some clinics have started to implement robotic technology for gingivectomy. This method is often utilized not only for medical purposes but also for aesthetic enhancement, such as refining the appearance of a person's smile.

Gum specialists employ this technique in the treatment of various forms of periodontal disease, also known as gum disease.

Moreover, this procedure plays a pivotal role in cosmetic dentistry, where it addresses the issue of a "gummy smile"—a condition where an excessive amount of gum tissue causes the teeth to appear unnaturally short or box-like.

In clinical terms, the excision or elimination of the gingiva via a gingivectomy is vital to lowering the risk of infection and decreasing the depth of the gingival sulcus. This is particularly important for patients who are discontented with their seemingly “short” clinical crowns.

Why Choose Robotic Gingivectomy Surgery in Turkey?

The decision to have a robotic gingivectomy surgery in Turkey can be influenced by a multitude of factors.

Turkey has emerged as a leader in the world of dentistry, offering a blend of advanced technology, highly skilled professionals, and excellent patient care.

Here's why you should consider Turkey for your robotic gingivectomy surgery:

Cheaper Robotic Technology

Unlike other clinics in developed countries, Turkish clinics such as International Clinics are known for offering affordable advanced medical technology to both local and international patients.

After all, the cost of implementation of robotic procedures has been a major obstacle for many patients. This affordability makes high-quality dental care accessible to broader demographics.

Exceptional Healthcare Professionals

Turkey is home to some of the best dental professionals in the world, many of whom have undergone international training in robotic medicine and other applications.

Robotic gingivectomy is still uncommon and that implies a limited number of surgeons who have mastered this technique. Luckily, there are many Turkish dentists who continually refine their skills to provide the best possible patient care.

High Standards of Patient Care

Turkish dental clinics strive to provide exceptional patient care, especially to international patients. From the initial consultation to recovery, they ensure that patients receive personalized attention, and are kept comfortable and well-informed throughout the process.

Robotic gingivectomy ensures a high level of precision and control, reducing human error, improving patient comfort, and facilitating faster recovery times.

Ease of Travel

Turkey sits close to both the European and Asian continents, making it an easily accessible destination for medical tourists.

Furthermore, the country's renowned hospitality industry further enhances the appeal, allowing patients to combine their dental procedures with a relaxing vacation in a culturally rich and historically significant destination.

Post-Operative Support

After undergoing a robotic gingivectomy, patients can expect thorough post-operative care from Turkish dental clinics. This includes regular follow-up appointments to monitor healing progress, as well as comprehensive patient education on maintaining oral hygiene and preventing future gum problems.

The Procedure of Robotic Gingivectomy Surgery

In essence, the process entails the removal and reshaping of loose, diseased gum tissue with the aim of eliminating pockets between the teeth and gums.

The process of a gingivectomy spans between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the volume of gum tissue earmarked for removal by your dental professional.

Minor interventions, such as those involving a single tooth or a small cluster of teeth, can usually be completed within a single appointment.

On the other hand, substantial gum removal or reshaping may require several visits. Here are the key steps involved in a gingivectomy:

1. anesthesia

Your dentist starts by injecting a local anesthetic into your gums to ensure numbness and comfort in the area undergoing the procedure.

2. Robotic soft tissue incision

With the use of a robotic arm, your dentist proceeds to excise portions of the gum tissue, a step commonly referred to as a soft tissue incision.

3. Saliva removal

Throughout the procedure, it's likely your dentist will maintain a suction tool in your mouth to effectively eliminate excess saliva, keeping the workspace clear.

4. Laser vaporization

After the removal of the tissue, your dentist may employ a laser tool to vaporize any remaining tissue to ensure aesthetically pleasing and healthy results.

5. Application of bandages

To conclude, your dentist applies a soft, putty-like substance and bandages to the treated area.

Recovery After Robotic Gingivectomy Surgery

Following your gingivectomy, it's generally expected that you'll be able to head home immediately. Given that your dentist will likely administer only local anesthesia, you should be fit to go back to your home on your own.

It's possible that a sharper or more sustained discomfort might set in as the numbing of anesthesia wears off over the next few hours. Here are some essential recovery tips to bear in mind:

Risks of Robotic Gingivectomy Surgery

Like any surgical procedure, robotic gingivectomy does come with its share of potential risks. While it generally leads to minor discomfort and pain, the main concern is often the risk of infection.

Cost of Robotic Gingivectomy Surgery

The cost of a robotic gingivectomy is usually higher than the cost of a traditional laser or scalpel gingivectomy. In Turkey, a robotic gingivectomy may cost between 500-700 US dollars. The traditional gingivectomy, however, can cost less than 200 US dollars.

In other countries, the cost of robotic gingivectomy could reach up to 2000 US dollars. This makes Turkey a better-suited place for those who seek cheaper, safe robotic gum surgeries.
