If you have not been to the dentist for some time, you may have experienced plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth and below your gum line. If not removed, this buildup can cause many problems for your oral health. Dr. Marc Resnick can perform a full mouth debridement, or FMD, to deep clean your smile.
Plaque forms on the teeth when food particles and bacteria are not removed with brushing and flossing. Tartar is a hard mineral deposit that not only makes the teeth look yellow or brown but can also contribute to dental decay. Daily dental hygiene and regular visits to the dentist prevent plaque and tartar from accumulating on the teeth.
When patients avoid visiting the dentist for regular teeth cleanings, they miss the opportunity to have plaque removed from the hard-to-reach areas of their smiles. This can result in the need for a full mouth debridement, in which our dentist utilizes an electronic scaler to clean the plaque and tartar above and below the gum line. If the buildup is severe, this procedure must be performed before the dentist can evaluate the health of your gums and bone.
