Study record managers: refer to the Data Element Definitions if submitting registration or results information. Preoperative and postoperative photographic and clinical observations about the gingival melanin pigmentation were made according to Dummett-Gupta Oral Pigmentation Index scoring criteria given by Dummett C. The investigators compared the intensity of pigmentation in each patient in recall sessions after 1month and 3mounth postoperative. It has an affinity for hemoglobin and melanin, so it is an excellent soft tissue laser and is applicated for cutting and coagulating gingival tissue. Today,sparse studies have been published assessing physiologic gingival pigmentation using diode laser,therefore the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of diode laser on the treatment of gingival pigmentation in adult patients.

Physiologic gingival pigmentation PGP is the most common type of gingival pigmentation and cosmetic concern particularly in gummy smile patients. Laser therapy is an effective and noninvasive treatment option. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of diod laser on the treatment of PGP in patients. Detailed Description:. Observations were made in natural light. The assessment of the scoring of the pigmentation index were done by all the three examiners, and the agreed upon score was assigned to prevent individual variations.

Pink esthetics in periodontics – Gingival depigmentation: A case series

Smile expresses a feeling of joy, success, sensuality, affection, and courtesy, and reveals self-confidence and kindness. The harmony of the smile is determined not only by the shape, the position, and the color of the teeth, but also by the gingival tissues. Thus, perio-esthetic treatment modalities strive to achieve a harmonious inter-relationship of the pink with white, which is imperative of all treatment procedures. For depigmentation of gingival, different treatment modalities have been reported, such as bur abrasion, scraping, partial thickness flap, cryotherapy, electrosurgery, and laser. In the present case series, scraping, electrosurgery, and diode laser have been tried for depigmentation, which are simple, effective, and yield good results, along with good patient satisfaction. Esthetic or cosmetic dentistry strives to merge function and beauty with the values and individual needs of every patient. These advances now allow the practitioner to achieve a periodontal environment that complements and enhances the creation of optimal dental esthetics.

Gingival Depigmentation by Diode Laser

Gingival melanin pigmentation occurs in all races of mankind. Although clinical melanin pigmentation does neither present itself as a medical problem nor a disease entity, it is a major esthetic concern for many people, especially Asians. Esthetic gingival depigmentation procedures can be performed in such patients with excellent results. This case series presents a split mouth de-epithelization procedure using popular surgical techniques such as scalpel, bur abrasion or electrosurgery. These techniques were successfully used to treat gingival hyperpigmentation.

Gingival depigmentation: A split mouth comparative study between scalpel and cryosurgery

Aim: The present study was undertaken to evaluate patient response and recurrence of pigmentation following gingival depigmentation carried out with a surgical blade and diode laser. Materials and Methods: Twenty patients who were esthetically conscious of their dark gums and requested treatment for the same were selected for this study. Complete phase I therapy was performed for all the patients before performing the gingival depigmentation procedures with laser and scalpel on a split-mouth basis. Patients were evaluated for pain 1 day, 1 week , wound healing and melanin repigmentation Melanin Pigmentation Index immediately and at 1 week, 1 month and 3 months, respectively. Results: The final results were statistically analyzed and significance was evaluated. The results of this study indicated that both scalpel and laser were efficient for gingival depigmentation.

Gum depigmentation

Gum depigmentation , also known as gum bleaching , is a procedure used in cosmetic dentistry to lighten or remove black spots or patches on the gums consisting of melanin. Melanin in skin is very common in inhabitants in many parts of the world due to genetic factors. Melanin pigmentation in skin, oral mucosa, inner ear and other organs is a detoxification mechanism. Also in the gums and oral mucosa a visible pigmentation is most often caused by genetic factors, but also by tobacco smoking [ citation needed ] or in a few cases by long-term use of certain medications. If smoking stop or change of medication do not solve the problem with a disfigurating melanin pigmentation, a surgical operation may be performed. The procedure itself can involve a laser ablation techniques. Melanocytes are cells which reside in the basal layer of the gingival epithelium.
