What is dental curettage – A brief overview

Professional cleaning is the method of removing plaque and tartar from the visible portion of the tooth. What if there are deposits on the root surface that are damaging the gums and the root surface lining? Dental curettage is the solution in such cases. 

What is dental curettage?

Dental curettage is another name for deep cleaning. There are two portions of our teeth- the crown and the root portion. Deep cleaning is mainly required for the deposits on the root surface that irritate the gums and infect the root lining. Dental curettage is the deep cleaning that removes the plaque and tartar from the root surface.

Indications of dental curettage

It is important to note that certain signs indicate the need for deep cleaning or dental curettage. However, having all the signs together is unnecessary, and it is essential to get your complete dental examination done to determine your eligibility. Our team will carefully examine your case and determine your eligibility. A customized treatment plan is formulated for you before proceeding with the process. 

Some of the common signs that should be looked for are:

  • Red and swollen gums
  • Painful and tender gums
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Pus discharge around gums
  • Tooth mobility

Dental Curettage vs scaling – What is dental curettage

Dental scaling is the professional cleaning that removes the plaque and tartar from the teeth’ surface. Dental curettage is the deep cleaning of the gum pockets to remove the infected lining, plaque, and tartar deposits. Dental scaling uses an ultrasonic scaler, whereas the dental curettage uses hand instruments called curettes. At Complete Dental Solutions Noida, we use Dental Lasers for curettage, the most advanced way to perform the procedure.

Benefits of Lasers

  • As lasers promote clotting, there is minimal bleeding
  • The chances of bacterial infection are lower 
  • As the tissue has regeneration capacity, the healing is fast
  • The risk of damage to the surrounding tissue is less
  • Reduces the anxiety amongst the people  
  • Preserve more healthy tissue while removing the infected part due to its precision.

Is the process painful?

Dental curettage is done under local anesthesia and is an entirely painless process. Dental lasers our experts use are even more comfortable, precise, and effective in performing dental curettage. Our Complete Dental Solutions Noida team ensures you are comfortable throughout the process. 

What if deep cleaning is not done?

If deep cleaning is suggested and you opt out of it, then the advanced gum disease will progress from the supporting tissues to the bones surrounding the tooth. It will affect tooth mobility and eventually lead to tooth loss. 

How long does the process take?

The time taken and the number of sessions required are totally dependent on the nature and severity of the disease. It is in your best interest to get your complete dental examination, so you know the exact details of your case.
