Goo yes...no bad...: The good effects of having curettage on one or more teeth is that you are removing bad tissues around the tooth and allowing new good tissue to grow in. Sort of getting rid of bad, infected tissue. The bad effect of curettage is that there may be some pain following it. That depends on how extensive you were cleaned and what your pain tolerance is. Earl.
