What is Gum Surgery?

Gum surgery is a surgical procedure to treat periodontal gum diseases. There are two types of gum surgery. The flap surgery involves making a flap like opening in the gum and cleaning plaque from deep periodontal pockets. Gum grafting surgery is performed when the patient has insufficient gum tissue. Gum surgery takes about 60 to 90 minutes.  

Is Gum Surgery painful?

Gum surgery is performed after administering local anaesthesia. Patients should not feel any pain during the surgery.

When can I travel by air after Gum Surgery?

Patients should travel by air up to two days after gum surgery. They should get certification from their doctor as fit for travel by air before embarking on their journey.

How long does recovery after Gum Surgery take?

Complete recovery from gum surgery will take three to four weeks.  

What post-operative care is required after Gum Surgery?

Patients should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should apply ice packs on their face to bring down the swelling. They should eat soft food till the stitches are removed. They should rinse their mouths gently for the first few days after surgery. Patients should not smoke or drink alcohol for at least a month.

Costa Rica Dental Services

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 29 Reviews I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea!TW, US, 20 Oct 16

It is my hope to provide the reader comfort and reassurance in making this important decision. If you are considering dental treatment in Costa Rica, please read this carefully. For many years I pursed smile enhancement and considered many options. After many attempts to whiten my teeth with over the counter treatments, and subsequent disappointments in the results, I searched for professional help and decided to meet with Dr. Gadea for veneers, I am so glad I did! Admittedly, it was concerning to travel outside the US for medical treatment. However, after researching credentials I made the decision. While in the lobby waiting for my appointment, I conversed with other Americans who also traveled to see Dr. Gadea and they shared their positive experiences. My confidence was reinforced when they stated they had returned for further treatments; it was very reassuring to me. After recently seeing my local dentist for routine cleaning my dentist complemented the work of Dr. Gadea and stated it appeared the work was done by a US dentist. When I shared the price for the work provided, he was really impressed. The value provided for the work performed is excellent. In conclusion, put your mind at ease (as much as you can), make the right choice, as I would definitely return to Dr. Gadea! Thank you, Happy Patient from Florida

Gum Surgery  
Sometimes gums are stain or are not well proportionate and it’s becomes difficult to show them in public. Having big gums, small or even too large teeth are aesthetic problems that some people face all the time and even having them healthy doesn’t mean they can show them how they would like to. The esthetic gums surgery allows you to correct pigmentation problems, get the right level to your gums and get even the space between teeth, providing your mouth a healthiest look and a better function.

Dr Marco Muñoz Cavallini International Dental Clinic

(877) 519-4628 Calles 28-30, Avenida 3 bis 2841, San Jose
Rating from 60 Reviews I am finally done and cannot be happier with the resultPaula, Canada, 18 Dec 15

I looked for a clinic in Costa Rica after getting 2 failed bridges done in Cozumel. I decided to go with this clinic due to the amount of experience these doctors have and the team in place. I started my treatment for 3 implants in May 2015. When I finished in Dec 2015, I had 4 implants, 7 crowns. I am finally done and cannot be happier with the result. It cost me way less than it would have in Canada (50%) and I had 2 amazing vacations in Costa Rica! My initial experience was just ok. The office staff was a little cold at first. I expected a warmer, friendlier greeting. I had a root canal and 3 implants. I had a lot of pain one of the nights due to too much work on one side. Mainly from the root canal....The implant surgery was fast and fairly pain free. But, after returning home, my tooth broke...that had the root canal done. On the second visit, I had to have an extraction, of the failed root canal and an implant put in place, plus 7 crowns. (they kindly deducted the amount paid for the root canal) The worst part was the extraction. I found the office staff very pleasant this time. Expect to wait sometimes. If you are told 2 pm, your apt can be more like 4pm, There is not always a dentist available due to surgeries and high volume. I would have liked to have the stages explained to me as I went along - I had no idea what to expect when.. I stayed at Barcelo San Jose Palacio. It is only 8 km away. It was a great choice, comfortable, great food and an awesome pool area to help 'get away' in the middle of very busy, bustling San Jose and dental work stress. Make sure you stay on a higher floor though due to ballroom noise....The drivers for the clinic are very good, know where they are going and it is a great worry free service they provide around the clock. They were available of the time and are very friendly. Over all, I am so happy with the end result. My teeth look and feel amazing! Dr. Marco Jr. did my implants. He was fast and funny. Dr. Trueblood did the rest and he was excellent, very skilled and kind. My bite is perfecto! I felt very comfortable with the staff. For a near perfect end result with your dental issues and a great vacation (if you add in a week or so to travel...) I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic to anyone. Thank you to Dr. Marco Jr. and his outstanding TEAM! Muchos Gracius!

Rating from 80 Reviews Extremely positiveStephen, US, 12 May 16

My treatment has been efficient, effective and timely. The staff is highly professional and acts in my interests. Extremely positive. I felt takien care of from the time I arrived in San Jose till the time I left.

My experience overall was very good whilst getting my Dental CrownsDavid, US, 24 Sep 16

I needed 28 crowns, due to my teeth being completely worn down from Bruxism. Absolutely no way I could afford it in the US. I had all my work done here at Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab for about 25% of that cost. Wow!! My experience overall was very good. There where many things I wish I had known before I went, but that was my fault. These people are very nice and superbly talented. Geovanna is such a sweetheart! And, the Doctors where very attentive to my comfort/pain. Overall the treatment and service is excellent! I give you (the future patient) permission to ask Geovanna for my e-mail address, if you would like more insights to my experience. They will be very positive, and hopefully you can enjoy your visit to CR.

Gum Surgery  
Cosmetic Gum Surgery (visible gum line) - Cosmetic gum surgery can help patients with smiles that show more gum than tooth to achieve a more attractive smile. In this procedure extra gum tissue is removed with a laser in order to expose more of the tooths surface. Cosmetic Gum Surgery (receding gum line) - As a result of age, gum disease, or a misaligned bite, patients may experience a gradual receding of the gums. This may cause discomfort as roots become exposed and loosening of the teeth occurs. To repair receding gums the cosmetic dentist will graft tissue taken from the roof of the mouth to the gum line. This "new" gum line will hold teeth in place and protect tooth roots from damage.
