What Are the Benefits of Getting Dental Debridement?

Posted on 2/20/2020 by Water's Edge Dental
What Are the Benefits of Getting Dental Debridement?When was the last time you visited us? Can you remember the last time you visited us? Has it been any time in the last two or three years? If not, you may need more than just a teeth cleaning when you come back and visit. Have you ever heard of a dental debridement? Let us take some time to answer some questions about dental debridement.

The Basics of Tooth Cleaning

When you come and visit us every six months, we clean your teeth and remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. While plaque is easy to remove just by brushing and flossing, tartar is hard and can't be removed without dental instruments.

It is important to remove tartar because over time, the buildup of tartar can damage your gums and cause gum disease. When you visit every six months, we are able to get the buildup off easily. But when you haven't been to us in over a year or two years, you have a lot of buildup. You'll need a dental debridement.

What Is Dental Debridement?

Dental debridement uses special tools to scrape all of the tartar off your teeth. It takes a little more time to do a dental debridement than it does a regular cleaning. You will need a dental debridement if it has been over a year since you've had your teeth cleaned, or if you have a thick buildup of tartar and plaque on your teeth.

Some people have more tartar on their gums than others, even if they have recently been to the dentist. You may also need a debridement if you have buildup underneath your gumline as well as at your gumline. Don't worry, it usually is not painful, but if you are concerned about pain, we can talk with you about that.

Do you have questions? Give us a call about the dental debridement procedure, and we'll be glad to answer your questions.
