Most insurance companies do not provide coverage for the gingival sculpting procedure and the costs for treatment may vary depending on the dentist, location and extent of procedure.
It’s important to keep in mind possible future health costs. In some cases, the gingival sculpting is recommended to reduce deep gum pockets caused by excessive gum tissue that collect bacteria which lead to infection and gum disease such as periodontitis and gingivitis. Some forms of gum disease have even been linked to respiratory problems, diabetes and heart disease.
The use of laser dental surgery in gingival sculpting provides minimal healing time, decreased risk of infection, and great precision. In addition to improving your smile, oral health and self-confidence, all factors previously discussed here should be considered in determining whether gingivectomy treatment is right for you.
