Auniversal curette,has a blade that is perpendicular to its terminal shank. This orientation allows the blade to be used against either the mesial or distal surface of a tooth. Because this type of periodontal curette was developed at theColumbia University College of Dental Medicine, it is also known as aColumbia curette. TheGracey curette, invented by Dr Clayton Gracey with the help of Hugo Friedman of Hu-Friedy Manufacturing company in the early 1940s, has a blade that is laterally offset by 70 degrees relative to the shank. Consequently, a Gracey curette has a lower, cutting edge, and an upper, non-cutting edge, . Because only one side of each blade can cut, Gracey curettes are site-specific, and a posterior instrument used to clean, mesialsurfaces of teeth will not work on, distalsurfaces, and vice versa. Gracey blades used for mesial surfaces of, anteriorteeth from the, facialare only suitable for the distal surfaces of the same teeth when access is performed from thelingual.

Description

Aperiodontal curetteis acuretteused in the prophylactic andperiodontalcare of humanteeth.

The working tips are fashioned in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they are always rounded at the tip in order to make subgingival cleansing less traumatic to thegingiva.

Periodontal scalersfeature a sharp tip to access supragingivalcalculusin tight embrasure spaces, thus making the curette the choice instrument for treating subgingival areas of calculus accumulation.

Curettes are best used when the terminal shank, namely, the last portion of the handle attached to the blade, is heldparallelto the longaxisof the tooth. To facilitate proper usage, instruments often come with posterior analogs which possess angled terminal shanks.

Classically, there are two recognized groups of curettes

  • Auniversal curette,has a blade that is perpendicular to its terminal shank. This orientation allows the blade to be used against either the mesial or distal surface of a tooth. Because this type of periodontal curette was developed at theColumbia University College of Dental Medicine, it is also known as aColumbia curette.
  • TheGracey curette, invented by Dr Clayton Gracey with the help of Hugo Friedman of Hu-Friedy Manufacturing company in the early 1940s, has a blade that is laterally offset by 70 degrees relative to the shank. Consequently, a Gracey curette has a lowercutting edgeand an uppernon-cutting edge. Because only one side of each blade can cut, Gracey curettes are site-specific, and a posterior instrument used to clean

  • distalsurfaces, and vice versa. Gracey blades used for mesial surfaces of
  • anteriorteeth from the
  • facialare only suitable for the distal surfaces of the same teeth when access is performed from thelingual.
