Orthodontic treatment needs more than a year in an average to complete in straightening malalign teeth during this period proper oral hygiene maintenance required. During treatment improper oral hygeine maintenance leads to problem toward periodontal tissue. Fixed appliances that bonded to the teeth surface can cause difficulty in controlling the plaque especially in the marginal region that can cause the inflammation and gingival enlargement. Gingival enlargement due to the local irritation of the plaque can be treated with plaque control, scaling, ischolar_main planing until surgery intervention. The aim of the treatment with surgical intervention for gingival enlargement is to eliminate the gingival pocket so the patient can easily clean the teeth and maintain the good oral hygiene status. Key words: gingival hyperplasia, gingivectomy, orthodontic treatment.

Abstract


Orthodontic treatment needs more than a year in an average to complete in straightening malalign teeth during this period proper oral hygiene maintenance required. During treatment improper oral hygeine maintenance leads to problem toward periodontal tissue. Fixed appliances that bonded to the teeth surface can cause difficulty in controlling the plaque especially in the marginal region that can cause the inflammation and gingival enlargement. Gingival enlargement due to the local irritation of the plaque can be treated with plaque control, scaling, ischolar_main planing until surgery intervention. The aim of the treatment with surgical intervention for gingival enlargement is to eliminate the gingival pocket so the patient can easily clean the teeth and maintain the good oral hygiene status. Key words: gingival hyperplasia, gingivectomy, orthodontic treatment.
