Full Mouth Debridement

Give Your Mouth A Fresh Start With A Full Mouth Debridement

There are many factors that contribute to healthy teeth and a beautiful smile, and even though we are aware of these factors, we often neglect a few steps in oral hygiene because it is simply boring, and we don’t all have the time. It is understandable that people often take the easy routes with self-care because there are so many more pressing matters on our plate that need our undivided attention. Things like work, managing your household, taking care of kids, and finding time to spend with your partner seem far higher on the priority list, but the truth is, your self-care is equally, if not more, important. Paying attention to your health in every aspect is vital to ensure you can perform at your best in every area of your life, and you simply can’t take care of others if you are not taking care of yourself. Typically, people will only brush their teeth once daily and completely avoid flossing or rinsing with a mouthwash. When we are in a hurry to get to work, the time we spend brushing our teeth is cut in half, probably not making a difference at all with the health and cleanliness of our mouths. Unfortunately, there are significant consequences to poor oral hygiene, so if you feel your teeth are suffering and need some TLC, then a full mouth debridement from The Dental Lounge is exactly what you need.

The Dental Lounge prioritizes proper oral hygiene but also understands how busy schedules often crowd our self-care routines. You can trust in their professionals to deliver excellent results and a seamless experience, even if going to the dentist is your worst nightmare!

Why You Need A Full-Mouth Debridement

If you run your tongue along your teeth and it feels rough, especially where the tooth meets the gum, you may have an excessive build-up of plaque and tartar. A toothbrush and toothpaste are not enough to remove stubborn build-up, so you may need to visit your dentist for a dental debridement. Brushing your teeth regularly and flossing are great preventative measures to keep your teeth and gums healthy, but regular visits to your dentist for cleaning are essential for those hard-to-reach areas that are prone to tartar build-up. Thankfully, dental debridement is not painful, and many patients find the procedure to be tolerable. Of course, the length and severity of the procedure depend on the state of your teeth, but your dentist will make sure you are as comfortable as possible throughout. A full mouth debridement allows your teeth to start over on the road to better oral health and is essential to avoid gum disease and tooth decay. Leaving tartar build-up on your teeth can become uncomfortable and may result in cavities or even tooth loss. Schedule regular check-ups with your dentist to ensure your teeth and gums are in excellent condition. 

Tips For A Healthy Mouth 

You are probably aware of everything you should be doing to keep your mouth healthy, but let’s have a refresher anyway. Here are some tips to practice daily for better oral health:

    • Brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time.
    • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush in a circular motion to avoid irritating your gums.
    • Floss as many times as you can, especially after eating.
    • Avoid sugary foods and drinks where possible, and rinse your mouth with a fluoride mouthwash after consuming sugary or acidic food. 
  • Visit your dentist often for check-ups and routine teeth cleaning.
