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 tartar on your teeth. Debridement is necessary when the deposits 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 regular dental prophylaxis to polish the teeth.
So, if you think you may be in need of a full mouth debridement then please, don't hesitate to contact our Metairie, LA dental office today!
