What is Periodontal Curettage?
Periodontal or Dental Curettage, used to treat gum problems, is the removal of dead inner tissue from the gum pocket in front of the tooth.
There are two types.
One, closed curettage, is a simple procedure. Performed by a dentist or hygienist who cleans tissue surrounding the tooth or teeth.
The other, open curettage, requires a surgeon. The gum is cut (under a local anesthetic) to expose the pockets so they can be easily cleaned. Once replaced the gums are stitched which are removed after 10 days.
