Root Planing and Curettage: What Is It and How Is It Done? At Istanbul Turkey

Recent studies in Europe show that over 50% of periodontal diseases are caused by plaque and tartar accumulation on the gum and root surfaces. At DentMax Oral and Dental Health Clinic, our expert team is here to prevent and treat gum diseases. Root planing and curettage procedures are essential for maintaining gum health and completing your treatment successfully.

What Is Root Planing and Curettage? Root planing and curettage involve cleaning the plaque, tartar, and bacteria accumulated below the gum line. This procedure, also known as deep cleaning, is crucial in treating periodontal diseases and restoring healthy gum pockets.

Methods of Root Planing and Curettage, Istanbul Turkey

Manual Curettage (Root Planing)

  • Method: The dentist uses special hand instruments to clean the plaque and tartar below the gum line.
  • Advantage: Provides precise and detailed cleaning of the root surface.
  • Use Case: Typically preferred for localized gum diseases and more superficial plaque accumulation.

Ultrasonic Curettage (Root Planing)

  • Method: High-frequency ultrasonic waves are used to clean the plaque and tartar below the gum line.
  • Advantage: Effective and quick cleaning in deep and wide gum pockets.
  • Use Case: Suitable for wide gum pockets and deep plaque accumulation.

Laser-Assisted Curettage (Root Planing)

  • Method: Laser is used to clean the infected tissues and bacteria below the gum line.
  • Advantage: Minimally invasive method, promotes fast healing, and effectively eliminates infection.
  • Use Case: Preferred in advanced stages of periodontal disease.

How Is the Root Planing and Curettage Procedure Performed at DentMax Istanbul Turkey?

  1. Examination and Planning: The dentist assesses the depth of the gum pockets and the spread of infection.
  2. Preparation: The gums are numbed with local anesthesia, and necessary preparations are made for the procedure.
  3. Cleaning: The selected method is used to clean the plaque, tartar, and infected tissues below the gum line.
  4. Surface Smoothing: The root surface is smoothed to prevent bacteria from accumulating again.
  5. Follow-Up: The gum pockets are checked post-procedure, and the healing process is monitored.

Necessity of Flap Surgery

Is Flap Surgery Necessary?

Flap surgery may be necessary during the root planing and curettage procedure depending on the extent and depth of the periodontal disease. Flap surgery involves lifting the gum to better clean the underlying tissues. This method yields effective results in treating deep pockets and advanced infections.

Who Needs Flap Surgery?

  • Advanced Periodontal Disease: Cases with deep gum pockets and widespread infection.
  • Gum Recession: Cases where the gums have receded and exposed the root surfaces.
  • Recurrent Infections: Persistent gum infections that do not respond to conventional treatments.

Post-Treatment Care for Root Planing and Flap Surgery

  • Oral Hygiene: Brush and floss your teeth regularly.
  • Medication Use: Take prescribed antibiotics and pain relievers as directed by your dentist.
  • Soft Diet: Consume soft and lukewarm foods for the first few days, avoiding hard and hot foods.
  • Follow-Up Appointments: Visit your dentist regularly to monitor the healing process.

Benefits of Root Planing and Curettage

  • Infection Control: Cleaning plaque and tartar below the gum line reduces the risk of infection.
  • Gum Health Preservation: Restoring healthy gum pockets prevents gum recession and tooth loss.
  • Pain and Discomfort Relief: Removing infected tissues reduces gum inflammation and associated pain.
  • Strengthened Teeth: Healthy gums support stronger and healthier teeth.
  • Aesthetic Improvement: Preventing gum recession ensures a more aesthetic and healthy smile.

Is Root Planing and Curettage Harmful? What Happens if Not Done?

Is It Harmful?

Root planing and curettage are not harmful when performed correctly by a dentist. They are essential for maintaining gum health and preventing infections. However, improper techniques can lead to gum irritation and sensitivity.

What Happens if Not Done?

  • Spread of Infection: Untreated gum infections can spread to surrounding tissues and even bone.
  • Tooth Loss: Advanced periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss.
  • Pain and Discomfort: Persistent inflammation and infection cause chronic pain and discomfort.
  • Overall Health Issues: Oral infections can trigger systemic health problems like heart disease and diabetes.
