Dental Instruments – Surgical Curettes
Surgical curettes are a type of dental instrument used in periodontal and implant surgery. They are typically designed with a small, curved blade that is used to remove tissue or debris from the surgical site. They can be used for a variety of procedures, including scaling and root planing, implant placement, and tooth extraction.
There are many different types of surgical curettes, each with a specific shape and purpose. Some common examples include:
- Gracey curettes: These are the most commonly used type of curette in periodontal surgery. They have a curved blade with a single cutting edge that is designed to remove calculus from the root surface.
- Universal curettes: These have a straight blade with two cutting edges, making them useful for both supra- and subgingival scaling.
- Columbia curettes: These have a rounded blade with a single cutting edge, making them useful for removing calculus from interproximal areas.
- Barnhart curettes: These have a straight blade with a rounded toe and two cutting edges, making them useful for removing calculus from all surfaces of the tooth.
Surgical curettes are typically made from high-quality stainless steel, which ensures that they are durable, corrosion-resistant, and easy to clean and sterilize.
