If you have periodontal disease, or if you have not visited our dentist in a long time, we may recommend a full mouth debridement. Without regular dental cleanings, plaque and tartar accumulate on your teeth, creating thick deposits that hide other dental conditions such as tooth decay or periodontal disease. Dr. Robert J Land can perform a full mouth debridements to remove these harmful deposits and make it possible to diagnose and treat any existing dental problems.

Full mouth debridement is more complex than regular dental cleanings. Our dentist and hygienist will begin by scraping away the plaque and tartar covering your teeth. Dr. Robert J Land can then examine your teeth and supporting structures to diagnose any existing or developing problems that were covered by the plaque and tartar previously. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may require additional treatment after your full mouth debridement. Some possible treatments we may provide include:
- Dental fillings
- Root canal therapy
- Scaling and root planing
- Oral surgery
- Regular dental cleaning
We strongly encourage you to visit our office at least twice each year for routine preventive treatments, especially if you have received a full mouth debridement. This will help keep your teeth and supporting structures healthy, and improve your overall oral health.
