Compared to scaling, curettage treatment is done at a deeper level. For this reason, it is also called 'deep cleaning'.

How is curettage treatment done?

  • The area to be treated is locally anesthetized using local anesthesia and the patient does not feel pain during the procedure.
  • Small incisions are made so that the gums can be processed.
  • Damaged and infected tissues of the gingiva, dental calculus are removed using a material called curettage. Laser can also be used to cut dead tissue. The aim is to prevent the transmission of damaged and inflamed tissues to healthy tissues.
  • During the application, saliva and blood are continuously removed with the washing apparatus placed in the mouth.
  • Tooth roots are corrected so that there is no suitable area for dental plaque formation.
  • In advanced cases (especially if the gum disease reaches the jawbone), different procedures such as scaling, root planning, graft addition can be applied.

  • What are the advantages of curettage therapy?

  • Oral hygiene and oral health are regained.
  • Gums are reattached to the clean root surface.
  • By removing the infected tissues, gum disease is prevented or its spread is prevented. The disease does not turn into periodontitis, which is the advanced stage of gum disease.
  • The health of the jawbone is preserved, and bone resorption is prevented.
  • Since there will be no tooth extraction and damage to the jawbone, the shaking of the teeth and tooth loss will be prevented.
  • Gum swelling will end.
  • Negativity that disrupts or may impair the aesthetic appearance of teeth and gums is eliminated. It will be possible to achieve pink gums, also called pink aesthetics.
  • What should be considered after dental plaque removal?

    To prevent or minimize the formation of dental plaque, the causes of dental calculus should be eliminated. Those who have tartar removal should pay attention to some rules after tartar cleaning. The steps to be taken for this could be as follows:

  • The recommendations of the dentist should be followed.
  • The recommendations of dentists about tartar should be followed.

    Articles written about dental calculus should be read on websites such as magazines, books, and reliable information.

  • Take a break from eating and drinking
  • Eating should be interrupted for at least 2 hours after dental plaque removal.

  • Precautions are taken due to hot and cold sensitivity.
  • It is normal to have hot and cold sensitivity within a few days after dental plaque removal. For this reason, hot and cold things should be avoided as much as possible, especially within the first 24 hours after the treatment.

  • Painkillers can be used in case of pain.
  • Sensitive teeth may have mild pain after treatment. In this case, pain relievers can be used.

  • Salt mouthwash is a good choice.
  • To speed healing, a glass of warm water can be gargled by adding salt.

  • Oral and dental care should be done regularly and correctly.
  • The most important precaution is to continue oral and dental care regularly and correctly. It is very important that the soft layers of food and microbes are removed immediately with daily care before they become hard plaques and stones. Although oral care after scaling can be strenuous for the patient, brushing and flossing should be continued. Tooth brushing should not be unidirectional, but should also be in the form of brushing the back surfaces of the teeth. When brushing your teeth, hold the brush at a 45-degree angle to the gum line. Brush in circles with tiny movements half the size of the teeth. Brushing hard teeth can cause tooth sensitivity and gum recession and erosion of tooth enamel. Interfacial brushes can provide a good cleaning where the toothbrush is not effective. It should not be forgotten that more serious hard plaque on teeth. problems may occur if regular oral care is not performed. In case of tooth sensitivity, suitable brushes that will not damage the gums should be selected. Information about toothpaste should be obtained from the dentist. Although it is stated that there are pastes that prevent the formation of tartar in the markets, the first thing to do is an effective oral and dental care. Mouthwashes with antiseptic properties can also be preferred. One of the questions asked is whether the dental calculus reoccurs after cleaning. If the necessary oral and dental care is not done, tartar may occur again.

  • Bleeding is normal.
  • Depending on the gingival structure, there may be slight bleeding after plaque on teeth cleaning. Bleeding will disappear after regular oral and dental care.

  • Small enlargement between teeth should not be frightening.
  • As the stone deposits at the bottom of the teeth are cleaned, the gaps between the teeth may increase slightly after the treatment. You shouldn't fuss.

  • Slight shaking of the teeth should not scare, it is temporary
  • Teeth may continue to wobble after treatment, as the tooth support tissue is lost or the supporting tissue weakens due to gingivitis, which can be seen as gingivitis (mild gingivitis) or periodontitis (the presence of infection that spreads to the root and gums, even to the bone). This situation is temporary. With cleaning, the tooth support tissue will be strengthened in a short time.

  • Be careful about eating and drinking.
  • Attention should be paid to a balanced diet, fibrous food consumption should be emphasized, and excessive consumption of sugary and bakery products should be avoided. It should not be forgotten that acidic foods will accelerate the formation of tartar. Consumption of fresh vegetables and fruits should be increased. These types of foods increase the amount of saliva. Increased saliva has a reducing effect on the number of microbes that accelerate plaque formation.

  • Smoking should be stopped if possible, otherwise it should be reduced.
  • One of the most common questions on the internet is whether smoking causes calculus teeth or does smoking cause calculus teeth. Smoking, which can cause many diseases, can also cause tartar. For this reason, it should be terminated if possible, otherwise it should be reduced.

  • Medical examination should not be forgotten.
  • You should go to the dentist for an examination every six months. If the gingiva is observed and areas with inflammation are still observed when the patient comes for control, the cleaning process should be repeated. After the cleaning process, the patient should pay attention to oral and dental care, while the dentist should follow the patient he recorded.
