Curettage Treatment


Curettage is a periodontal treatment for gum disease that involves the removal of accumulated plaque, tartar, and infected tissue from the gums.
Contrary to popular belief, it is not a traditional teeth cleaning procedure, but a more in-depth form of cleaning targeting periodontal disease.
The primary goal of curettage treatment is to maintain oral and dental health, preventing potential issues such as tooth loss and jawbone problems (like bone resorption).


How is Curettage Treatment Performed?

In this procedure, a special instrument called a curette is used, which is inserted beneath the gumline. The curette is used to scrape and clean the inner surfaces of periodontal pockets. The aim is to halt gum disease progression and restore gum health.

Is Curettage Treatment Painful?

Since the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, patients do not feel any pain during it.

How Many Sessions Does Curettage Treatment Require?

The treatment can typically be completed in a single session if no advanced gum disease is present.

When is Curettage Treatment Recommended?

Curettage treatment may be recommended for conditions like gum inflammation, periodontitis, receding gums, or as a preparatory procedure before an implant or periodontal surgery.

What are the Advantages of Curettage Treatment?

Curettage treatment can reduce gum bleeding, prevent tooth loss, and enhance the success of dental implants. Unhealthy, swollen gums can be replaced with healthy ones.

What are the Disadvantages of Curettage Treatment?

The treatment may cause sensitivity and discomfort. There is a slight risk of gum recession due to inflammation. The treatment may need to be repeated. At Clinic EGO, our expert dentists work to minimize these risks.

Who is Suitable for Curettage Treatment?

Curettage treatment is appropriate for almost any patient experiencing gum problems.

Is There a Risk of Infection During Curettage Treatment?

The risk of infection during curettage treatment is generally low because the procedure is performed in a sterile environment under hygienic conditions. Our clinic ensures all necessary conditions are met with our modern equipment.

How Long Does it Take for the Effects of Curettage Treatment to Be Visible?

Typically, the effects of curettage treatment start to be noticeable within a few weeks, but the complete healing process may take longer. It may take several weeks or months for the gum tissues to heal and tighten. The duration of the full healing process varies depending on the initial condition of the gums, the severity of gum disease, and the individual’s healing rate.

What Preparation is Required for the Curettage Procedure?

Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial. If you are taking any medications regularly, inform your dentist. In case of any chronic illnesses, allergies, or medication intolerances, your treatment plan can be adjusted accordingly.
