The gingival curettage is a procedure used to clean the inside of the gingival wall of any sick or injured soft tissue. This kind of method can be used during root planning, which means removing the necrotic tooth substance, or during scaling, which means removing deposits from the root surface. Using only curettage procedure will not remove the causes of infection, but our dentists in Dubai will be able to deliver the patient a complete dental treatment for any gum or other tooth complications. You can also ask for dental implants in Dubai if you have suffered from tooth loss and you wish to regain your oral health.
Types of curettages and when they are required
There are two types of curettages that our dentists in Dubai use and explain to all patients every time is necessary:
The gingival curettage is done laterally to the pocket wall, where the irritated or injured soft tissue is eliminated. The procedure for subgingival curettage is made in order to split the connective tissue supplement down to the osseous peak. The purpose of curettage is to decrease pocket deepness by enhancing gingival reduction and new connective tissue attachment. Curettage procedure reduces inflammation prior to pocket removal for patients where aggressive surgical procedures are contraindicated because of age, psychologic or systemic problems. Curettage does not eliminate the causes of inflammation, so it should always be followed by scaling and root planning. In this case, our dentist in Dubai will use a local anesthetic injection or spray into the mouth in the area of affected gingival tissues.
What type of instruments are used
The dental instrument is a sharp curette introduced into the tooth pocket facing the periodontal pocket. Our dentists in Dubai will then use a horizontal stoke to eliminate the inflamed tissue from the pocket. After the irritated tissue is detached, the dentist will flush and clean the pocket. Curettage is usually used when the patient suffers from periodontitis, that means inflammation and infection of the gums. The dentist in Dubai is using this procedure after scaling and root planning, alongside periodontal operations or in the case of a persistent periodontal infection.
Dental appearance and healthcare after a gingival curettage
After one week, gingival looks reduced in height due to apical shift in the position of the gingival edge and, after two weeks, the color, the surface, texture and the consistency are normal. Also, the contour of gingival margin is well adjusted to the tooth. Our Dubai dentist recommends to his patients who suffered a gingival curettage procedure to preserve an accurate oral hygiene. You can also receive dental implants in Dubai, if necessary. It is good to know that our dental clinics in Dubai are properly equipped with high-class technology.
