What is a full mouth debridement and why do I need it?
A full mouth debridement may be necessary if you have thick or dense deposits of plaque and tarter on your teeth. A debridment is necessary when the depostis are too heavy to allow proper visualization of teeth and gums for a dentist to do a proper examination and diagnosis.
Following the debridement a comprehensive examination by the dentist can be completed. Findings on this examination may include additional treatment such as a deep periodontal cleaning or a regular dental prophylaxis to polish the teeth.
So, if you think you may be in need of a full mouth debridement, than please, don't hesitate to contact our Metairie, LA dental office today!
