Scalers and curettes are dental instruments used for cleaning teeth and removing calculus (tartar) and plaque from tooth surfaces. They are essential tools for maintaining oral hygiene and preventing gum disease.

Scalers are primarily used to remove large deposits of calculus from the tooth surface. They have a pointed tip and are designed to be used in a back-and-forth motion. There are many different types of scalers, including sickle scalers, Jacquette scalers, and Chisel scalers.

Curettes, on the other hand, are used to remove smaller deposits of calculus and to smooth out the tooth surface. They have a rounded tip and are designed to be used in a circular motion. There are several different types of curettes, including universal curettes, Gracey curettes, and Columbia curettes.

Both scalers and curettes are typically made of stainless steel and can be used for both supragingival and subgingival scaling. However, it is important to note that subgingival scaling should only be performed by a trained dental professional to prevent damage to the gum tissue.
