When was the last time you went to the dentist for your routine dental appointments? The American Dental Association® recommends that if you haven’t attended your six-month appointments, there is a possibility that our dentists and team will need to perform a full-mouth debridement in Woodbridge, Virginia.
Patients who do not receive regular dental cleanings often have a thick buildup of plaque and tartar on their teeth. In cases of extreme buildup, Dr. Ibrahim El-Garawany and associates may be unable to determine if you have tooth decay, periodontal disease or other problems above and below the gum line. In these instances, our team at Adam Dental Care may rely on a debridement to thoroughly clean the teeth.
Due to the complex nature of the treatment, debridement takes more time than a standard dental cleaning. Our team will scrape the deposits using traditional and electric scaling tools.
After you have had your debridement at Adam Dental Care, you may still require additional treatments, such as:
- Additional dental cleanings
- Dental fillings
- Scaling and root planing
- Dental crowns
- Root canal treatment
- Periodontal maintenance
Call our office at 703-221-9759 to schedule an appointment with our team. We want to help you improve your oral health and smile confidently again.
