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.

Dr Marco Muñoz Cavallini International Dental Clinic

(877) 519-4628 Calles 28-30, Avenida 3 bis 2841, San Jose
Rating from 61 Reviews I am very happy that I chose this clinic.Lynn, Ashford, 10 Jun 16

I would highly recommend this clinic for much cheaper yet great quality dental work. I had 7 implants put in and had major bone grafts along with it. I chose zirconia implants since I didn't want the metal in titanium and thought porcelain may not last. In Connecticut where I live 2 different dentists gave me a quote for $50,000.00 for only 3 implants & crowns & bridges. This clinic quoted me $17,000.00 for 7 implants and crowns & bridges for many of my teeth besides the 7. Even with the plane tickets lodging & meals I couldn't come close to the $50,000 so yes this was a fantastic value. I researched online & this clinic kept coming up with good reviews so I chose it. First impression of the area & the buildings was not good as I was picturing Costa Rica with rainforests, waterfalls etc which is there if you travel away from the city. Once inside it was professional & clean. I had Dr. Marco who is an incredible dentist, honest, direct & willing to work with any concerns or needs which I did have. They even offer lodging upstairs from the clinic and another across the street from it which is very convenient. You can stay in the comfort of your room or with other people in the same boat in the dining room until they call you for your appointment to avoid having to wait in the waiting room. I am very happy that I chose this clinic.

Costa Rica Dental Services

(866) 260-9546 Calle 1, Avenida 6, San Pedro, Montes de Oca, San José, 2050
Rating from 32 Reviews Dr. Gadea and his team are top notch !! You will not be disappointed !Robert, US, 12 Dec 16

8 Extractions, 8 Implants with bone grafts, 5 veneers, 6 Crowns This is a follow up to my first January treatment, when Dr. Gadea extracted 8 teeth and implanted the stems of the 8 implants with bone grafts. I came back in August, after the bone grafts and implant stems were secure and solid, to have the remainder of the work done. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Gadea and his team.I experienced no pain during the entire process due to his use of Novocaine and non opioid pain pills. He was meticulous in his work, even sending back to the lab one of the porcelain tops of the implants that he felt fit poorly. Even though the remaining work only took appointments during a four day period, I would suggest to anyone who has traveled to have work done, to stay an extra 5-6 days to make sure the fit is correct with no pain. I wanted a small adjustment for an area that I thought was too high and he took care of it immediately. Dr. Gadea and his team are top notch !! You will not be disappointed !

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.

Ballestero Dental Care

(877) 304-0812 ext: 12677 TORRE MEDICA PACIFIC PLAZA HOSPITAL CIMA GUANACASTE, Comunidad, 5001
Rating from 1 Review The experience was amazingMichael, Canada, 02 May 18

Two dentists in Canada recommended dental implants in place of my lower teeth. I was on vacation in Costa Rica and decided to get another opinion. I first approached another dentist in Coco but was turned off by his manner. I then sent my file to Dr. Ballestero. From that moment it was clear that Dr. B was different! He phoned me in Canada to discuss the recommendations and ultimately he recommended I do not go the full implant route. Not only was the cost less than 1/4 of the quotes I received in Canada - but the time, and care, and concern were far superior to what I had been receiving or have ever received from a dentist. I had the work done in March 2018 and the experience was amazing. Dr. Ballestero's professionalism coupled with his caring manner are unmatched. If there was a way to give him more than 5 stars I would! I would happily recommend Dr. Ballestero to anyone considering any level of dental treatment.

Clinica Baldor

Sabana Norte, From El Chicote Restaurant, 100 mts North, 25 mts East and 100 mts North, San Jose
Rating from 1 Review It was the most pleasant dental experience I ever hadBonnie, US, 19 Apr 18

15 years ago I had 5 periodontal surgeries done and bridges put in. The following year my husband returned to me and had 5 periodontal surgeries plus some restoration. I am looking forward to going back real soon. The doctors and staff are just wonderful people. It was the most pleasant dental experience I ever had and was 1/10 of the cost it would have been in the US. My dentist in the US said he had not seen any better work done anywhere in the US.
