Dental clinic Amel Dental Clinic in Dnepr (Dnepropetrovsk) is a digital dentistry center. Patient safety, introduction of the latest dental technologies for the development of a qualitatively new level of dentistry in Ukraine, raising standards in treatment and prevention is our main goal. One of the methods of prevention of inflammatory processes in the oral cavity, which is used by the doctors of the clinic, is the curettage of the teeth.
Periodontal pocket curettage is a dental surgical procedure in which the doctor cleanses the enamel of the teeth in the area under the gum. The periodontal pocket is the space between the gum and the tooth root that forms when the gums are inflamed. Bacteria and food debris enter the formed gap, plaque appears on the enamel surface, which is then converted into tartar. Under these conditions, gum disease is inevitable.
The doctor’s tasks in the curettage process are: removal of food debris, excision of affected tissues, removal of calculus, cleansing of periodontal pockets – areas that are not available for standard cleaning methods. The main purpose of curettage is therapeutic and prophylactic.
Curettage is a necessary procedure in the treatment of diseases such as gingivitis, periodontitis. These diseases are characterized by inflammation of periodontal tissues, dental plaque, gum motility and enlargement of the gingival pocket.
Curettage may also be required if the following factors are present:
If you are faced with one of the listed problems, make an appointment with a dentist at Amel Dental Clinic. Based on the examination results, the doctor will prescribe curettage for you in the most effective, painless way, taking into account individual indications.
Amel Dental Clinic uses the following methods for hygiene of periodontal pockets:
The indication for closed curettage is a small depth of the gingival pocket (up to 5 mm). The peculiarity of the operation is the absence of an incision. The procedure is performed using local anesthesia. The purpose of the manipulation is to remove the source of inflammation, restore gum tissue.
Closed curettage is performed in several stages:
Open curettage is indicated for patients if the depth of the gingival pockets is more than 5 mm (when closed curettage is not effective). In this case, in order to provide access to the periodontal tissues, a gum incision is required in the space between the teeth.
The operation is carried out according to the following scheme:
If the incision also does not open access to the area where plaque needs to be removed, then the soft tissue flap technique is used to open access to the dental root. After cleaning, to fix the gum flaps, the doctor applies a special bandage at the operation site. The flap incision method is also used when it is necessary to reconstruct the destroyed bone tissue.
Along with traditional methods, our clinic performs laser cleaning and sterilization of the periodontal pocket (s).
