If you have not been to the dentist in a while, you might need a full mouth debridement procedure to get your teeth completely clean. Without proper daily oral hygiene and regular checkups and cleanings, excessive amounts of plaque and tartar can build up, making it hard for Dr. Joseph Tagliarini to determine if your gum tissue is healthy or not. A full mouth debridement is a super deep cleaning “catch up” session to remove as much of the plaque and tartar as possible, giving your teeth a fresh start to get healthy again.

What happens during a full mouth debridement procedure?

Depending on how much plaque and tartar has built up since your last trip to the dentist, your dental debridement procedure might need to be broken up into two separate sessions at our New Haven office.

During the first session, Dr. Joseph Tagliarini will remove as much of the build-up as possible, giving your gum tissue the chance to begin healing.

About 2-3 weeks later, after your gums have healed a little bit and the inflammation has gone down (your gums might be a little sore after the debridement, since they’will be free of plaque and tartar for the first time in a long time!), you will come back for a second appointment, where any remaining plaque or tartar can be removed. The second appointment is also when Dr. Joseph Tagliarini will perform a regular dental exam, checking for signs of gum disease or cavities that may need to be filled. Depending on the state of your oral health, you might have to come back for additional appointment, where other periodontal treatments will be performed.

Most of the time, a regular teeth cleaning procedure with one of our dental hygienists is more than enough to help keep your teeth clean and healthy, but if it has been a few years since you last sat down in the dentist’s chair, you might need a full mouth debridement procedure to get you back on the right track.
