A Gracey curette is a dental instrument commonly used in periodontal procedures for scaling and root planing. It is designed to remove calculus (tartar) and plaque from the root surfaces of teeth below the gumline. The Gracey curette has a specific design that allows access to different areas of the tooth root, making it effective in treating periodontal pockets and promoting gum health. The clinical benefit of a Gracey curette with a DLC-coated tip lies in its improved durability, reduced friction, and resistance to corrosion. These features can contribute to more efficient and effective scaling and root planing procedures. The smoother movement and enhanced tactile sensitivity provided by the DLC-coated tip can aid clinicians in accessing periodontal pockets, removing calculus more effectively, and promoting better oral hygiene for patients.
