Recovery/Healing Time for Gingivectomy before 14hr Flight?

Hi, and thank you for your question. Initial gum tissue healing should take 3 to 7 days with a healthy adult. You should be able to fly soon thereafter. Good luck!
Should be fine if no bone removal was involved
If bony re-contouring was done, I would wait until after your one-week post-op check before travelling.
