Gum health is very important both in terms of the longevity of the teeth and in terms of its effect on general health. It is called tartar formation when the dental plaques formed on the tooth surfaces turn into a calcified structure due to the inability to clean them properly. The formed tartar affects the gingival health negatively. In addition, it can lead to bad results such as bleeding gums, bad breath, an aesthetically bad appearance or tooth loss.

Gum health is also evaluated at regular intervals by the dentist, and if necessary, calculus is cleaned with the help of special tools. The calculus on the visible surfaces of the teeth can be cleaned without the need for local anesthesia. However, if there are calculus extending to the root surfaces in the lower part of the gums, calculus cleaning is performed with local anesthesia.

After the tartar is cleaned, the existing stains on the teeth are cleaned with the help of polishing (polishing) or airflow (pressurized water). A brighter and healthier state is achieved.

What is curettage?

In cases where the calculus is on the root surfaces, the process of cleaning the gingiva and straightening the root surfaces is called curettage. Curettage is performed under local anesthesia. No pain is felt during the procedure.
