An effective method of treatment of gum disease – gingivitis and paradontitis.
Curettage of paradontal pockets is done to remove tooth tartar, plaque and pathologically changes soft tissues under the gums, which are impossible to remove during cleaning.
Smoothening of the surfaces of tooth roots helps fortify the gums to surfaces and reduces the depths of pockets.
STAGES OF TREATMENT
Depend in gon the degree of in flammation of the gums and the depth of the pockets, our paradontologist assigns the curettage by an open or closed method.
The surfaces of the roots are cleaned to the very bottom of the paradontal pocket. Soft tissues are not damaged in the process. Treatment is done under anesthetics, painlessly and comfortably.
We check changes in the depth of the dental pockets and put draw up a plan of action for prophylaxis of inflammation.
Our paradontologists conduct a comprehensive procedure aimed at reducing inflammation of the gums. This allows for stopping the process of decay of bones in the case of paradontitis.
Precise control on the part of our doctor–we register the status of the gums and track the dynamics of changes.
YOU CAN APPEAL. SERVICES AND TECHNOLOGIES
Now dental clinics strive to ensure that the treatment will be not only effective and safe, but also comfortable for the patient.
Modern methods of anesthesia can provide complete analgesia, but sometimes they cannot cope with the fear of treatment or tooth extraction. Dental treatment with sedation is a comfortable solution to such issues.
MYTHS AND QUESTIONS ANSWERS
1. How many times do I have to do curettage?
Curettage in most cases is a one-time procedure. It depends on the depth of periodontal pockets.
2. What is the difference between open and closed curettage?
The open curettage differs from the closed only by the fact that during it, the gingival flap is expanded to achieve greater efficiency.
3. How long does curettage last?
The duration of the curettage procedure depends on the complexity of the situation (depth of pockets) and the number of teeth involved in the inflammatory processes. On average, the procedure lasts from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours.
4. Will I be able to smile and work the next day? What food can I eat? How long does it take to heal gums after curettage?
The next day after the procedure (closed curettage) the patient does not experience any unpleasant sensations. After the closed curettage for the first 3 days you cannot eat dry, hard food (crackers, chips, nuts). The next day after the open curettage, the patient may feel discomfort in the gums from the stitches, but gums themselves do not usually disturb you. The entering of traumatic, hard food to operated areas is unwanted. After the intervention, the doctor prescribes certain hygiene products (soft brush, toothpaste with antiseptic, rinse solution). Germs heal during 7-10 days after the procedure.
5. Is medical support possible?
Medical support is possible during any of the above procedures.
