What does full mouth debridement means?

Reset Decrease Increase
When heavy plaque and tartar deposits have build up on your teeth, the dentist will often recommend a procedure called full mouth debridement in order to remove them.

Plaque is the sticky colorless film of food and bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth.
If it’s not removed every day, plaque hardens into tartar and over time, plaque and tartar build up on your teeth.

A heavy build up of plaque and tartar can make it difficult for the dentist to examine your teeth and gingival tissue.
It is also important to remove the accumulation of plaque and tartar because they are the main cause of tooth decay and gum disease.

Many factors can contribute to a heavy buildup. Here are some examples:

- dry mouth (xerostomia)
- tobacco use
- certain health conditions
- braces
- poor homecare
- lack of regular professional dental cleanings

Depending on the situation, the dentist may begin the procedure by applying a numbing gel or nitrous oxide to make you more comfortable.

Then the dentist will use a variety of instruments to carefully remove the plaque and tartar above and around the gum line.

The dentist may also apply an antimicrobial rinse. Then, the dentist will finish the procedure by reviewing your homecare routine.

A full mouth debridement is an important initial step in the ongoing evaluation and treatment of your oral health.
