Dentist in Highland MD
Debridement is the removal of tartar above the gum line and making the teeth become visible! Sometimes due to extensive amount of tartar, the teeth are hardly visible. This means that the chunks of tartar should first be removed in order to proceed with any further treatment. This is not a routine dental cleaning. This is not scaling and root planing. Following up with dental debridement in most cases is a comprehensive exam, and scaling and root planing.
