To eliminate the inflamed tissue and promote healing

Gingival Curettage?

By removing inflamed and infected tissue, the procedure helps reduce periodontal pockets, improve oral hygiene, and prevent the progression of gum disease.

What is Gingival Curettage?

Gingival curettage is a dental procedure that involves removing diseased tissue from the gums around the teeth. Performed by a periodontist or dentist, the procedure aims to eliminate bacteria and debris from the periodontal pocket, the space between the tooth and the gum. The primary goal is to promote gum tissue healing and reduce the risk of further damage or infection.

This procedure is typically recommended for individuals with periodontal disease or other gum conditions that have not improved with non-surgical treatments like scaling and root planing. Gingival curettage can also be used alongside other surgical procedures, such as periodontal flap surgery or gum grafts, to enhance gum healing and prevent further damage to the teeth and gums.

Benefits of Gingival Curettage

Improves Gum Health: Removing diseased tissue helps to restore healthy gum tissue and reduces the risk of further periodontal damage.

Reduces Periodontal Pockets: The procedure helps to reduce the depth of periodontal pockets, making it easier to maintain oral hygiene and prevent plaque buildup.

Prevents Tooth Loss: By treating periodontal disease, gingival curettage helps to preserve the bone and tissues supporting the teeth, preventing tooth loss.

Alleviates Symptoms: The procedure can alleviate symptoms of periodontal disease, such as bleeding gums, bad breath, and gum tenderness.
