Why Do I Need A Full Mouth Debridement?

Have you been meaning to go to the dentist but things keep popping put - work, school, kids. Before you know it, years have passed.  You finally made your dentist appointment and they tell you they need to do a full mouth debridement, you are probably wonder what this is right?

A full mouth debridement is the removal of plaque and calculus that interfere with the ability of the dentist to preform a comprehensive oral evaluation.

Full mouth debridement takes longer than a normal cleaning and you may need to undergo periodontal treatment if periodontal disease is apparent.

After having a full mouth debridement your dentist will have you come back about 2-3 weeks later, after your gums have healed so he can properly exam your mouth. Now your dentist will be able to detect any cavities, if periodontal treatment is needed and many others!

Remember it's not to late to get your smile back on track!!
