How Does Curettage Dental Treatment Work

Curettage Dental involves the use of specialized dental instruments, such as curettes, to carefully remove the infected or damaged tissue from the gum pockets. This process helps eliminate bacteria and promotes the healing of the gums. In some cases, antibiotics or antimicrobial agents may be used to further combat infection and promote recovery.


  • Subgingival scaling and root planing
  • Localized curettage for specific affected areas
  • Laser-assisted periodontal therapy
  • Antibiotic or antimicrobial treatments
  • Ongoing periodontal maintenance and follow-up care

Treatment steps

  1. Assessment of gum health and evaluation of the affected areas
  2. Application of local anesthesia to numb the gums
  3. Careful removal of infected tissue using dental curettes
  4. Thorough cleaning and smoothing of the tooth roots
  5. Application of antimicrobial agents or antibiotics, if necessary

Session: A Curettage Dental session refers to a single appointment or treatment session dedicated to the procedure.

Painful or Painless: Curettage Dental is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that the procedure is relatively painless for the patient. Some discomfort or mild soreness may be experienced afterward, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

During the course of having laser hair removal sessions, we will only allow you to shave or trim your hair. This is because waxing and plucking will pull the hair out of the root meaning the laser will be less effective at your next session.
