Subgingival curettage is a procedure that is performed apical to junctional epithelium in which the connective tissue part is cut off to the bone crest. Our dentists in Dubai will use local anesthesia for this simple dental procedure and will explain to the patients the entire treatment and how to keep a proper dental care.
Subgingival curettage, step-by-step
In this kind of procedure, the dentist in dubai will use a sharp curette to remove the tissue and then he will insert it into the tooth pocket with the sharp edge fronting the periodontal pocket. The next step in this dental procedure is using a horizontal stoke to eliminate the irritated tissue from the pocket. After removing the inflamed tissue, the dentist will flush the pocket. In some cases, the sewing of divided tissue and the use of a periodontal pack may be necessary.
Practice of gingival and subgingival curettage in dentistry
When patients suffer from periodontitis, meaning the infection and inflammation of the gums, our dentist in Dubai will perform a preliminary checkup and will be able to proceed with a gingival or subgingival curettage, if the case requires it. In some conditions, the procedure might not be suitable because there are patients who have an opening of the pocket that is too thin. Subgingival curettage alone will not remove the sources of infection, but our dentists in Dubai will offer to their patients a complete dental treatment for any gum complications.
Dental treatment after a subgingival curettage
After only one week, the gum will appear reduced in height due to apical shift in the location of gingival edge and, after two weeks, the color and the surface texture will be regular. Also, the outline of gingival edge will be well adjusted to the tooth. Our dentists in Dubai advise their patients that suffered a subgingival curettage procedure to preserve a correct oral hygiene. As a reminder, you can also receive dental implants in Dubai. It is good to kow that our dental clinics in Dubai are properly equipped with high-class technology.
