Our dentists may recommend full mouth debridement if you have not visited our office for preventive care in some time. Full mouth debridement works to remove the unusually thick deposits of plaque and tartar on your teeth that accumulate when they are not regularly removed. For more information about full mouth debridement in Decatur, Texas, and to schedule your appointment with Dr. Tran Dang, please call Forever Teeth today.
When you do not receive dental cleanings regularly, plaque and tartar accumulate on your teeth, creating thick deposits that may mask other dental conditions such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. Full mouth debridement removes these deposits to improve the overall health of your mouth and make it easier to diagnose and treat any existing or developing problems.
Full mouth debridement takes more time and is more complex than routine cleanings. When you receive this treatment, our dentists and hygienists will scrape away the plaque and tartar covering your teeth. After removing these deposits, our dentist will examine your teeth and supporting structures to check for any dental problems and determine how severe those problems are. It is possible that you will require another treatment after your full mouth debridement, such as:
- Regular dental cleaning
- Root canal therapy
- Scaling and root planing
- Oral surgery
We strongly encourage you to continue visiting our dentists at least twice each year for routine preventive care, especially if you have undergone full mouth debridement. To schedule your appointment and learn more about this treatment, please contact our office in Decatur at 940-626-4441.
