Gracey curettes are dental instruments used for periodontal scaling and root planing procedures. They are designed to remove plaque, tartar, and calculus deposits from below the gumline and smooth the surface of the root. Gracey curettes are named after their inventor, Dr. Clayton Gracey, who developed the instrument in the early 1940s.

Gracey curettes have a curved, elongated shank with a sharp, curved working end. They come in a variety of sizes and angles to allow for better access to different areas of the mouth. The Gracey 1/2 and 11/12 are the most commonly used curettes, with the 1/2 being used for anterior teeth and the 11/12 for posterior teeth.

Gracey curettes are essential tools for maintaining good oral hygiene and preventing periodontal disease. They require skill and precision to use properly, and should only be used by trained dental professionals.
