Better healing: Irrigation can be with various solutions for different purposes. Debris removal with hydrogen peroxide can be used. Chlorahexadine can be used for better healing and bacteria removal. Irrigation can be done in conjunction with a debridement or scaling and root planning, depending on the diagnostic findings of the dentist. ...Read more
Big difference.: Deep cleaning is scaling and root planning, which is treatment for gum disease with pockets deeper than 3-4mm. It takes more than one visit and costs considerably more. When indicated, it is absolutely necessary. Full mouth debridement is usually when someone hasn't had a cleaning in a while and during the initial hygiene visit, the tartar above the gum line is removed. Srp may be required next. ...Read more
Pre-cleaning: A full mouth debridement is the removal of all supra gingival calculus in someone that has not had a cleaning for more than 1-2 years or more. The patient is then asked to return for a second visit to remove any debris that has become reachable with the previous inflammation now subsided and the teeth then polished. If pockets are found upon probing then a treatment plan is devised for gum disease. ...Read more
Simple explanation: A "routine" cleaning is performed on a patient every few months or so, and as such the patient's teeth are relatively easy to clean. Patients who have poor oral hygiene and have not seen a dentist in years have so much calculus that they need debridement to remove all the hardened material. It is next to impossible to thoroughly clean years of hardened calculus in one visit. ...Read more
Help I had a debridement 3 days ago and now between my two front bottom teeth I have a gap where my gum use to be. Is this normal?
It can happen: If there has been a lot of plaque and tartar accumulation between the teeth, the space in between can get deeper due to periodontal disease and bine loss. The space mist likely has been getting wider for some time, but due to gum inflammation, you could not see it before. Talk to your dentist to see if there are any treatments to improve or eliminate the space. ...Read more
Got spine surgery done & got a post op infection. Had leg head neck pain debridement done, still has leg pain, reduced hearing no more neck/head pain?
Leg pain post-op: A spine surgery causes scar tissue within the spinal canal. Especially if there is an infection, this scar tissue can be more proliferative. It then encases nerve roots, which get tethered by this scar tissue and causes pain along the nerve root. In some cases the scar can even compress the nerve root not unlike the original cause- a herniated disc! A spinal cord stimulator is best for long term. ...Read more

Some normal: It would be normal to still have some discomfort 7 weeks after this procedure. The main point is it improving? It's very important to follow your doctor's orders for weight bearing and activity. If pain is severe and increasing despite rest or there is any redness, wound drainage or increasing tenderness then call your surgeon now. ...Read more
Had arthroscopic ankle debridement & modified brostrom 7 wks ago. Feel pain in ankle when full weight bearing. Is this normal? How long?
Yes: 7 weeks is not that far out for foot and ankle surgery. Since you had surgery on something that you walk and bear weight on, pain, soreness, and swelling can occur for several months...sometimes even 6 months. Soreness is definitely to be expected at this point. I would say that any remaining sharp pain should begin to improve during the next few weeks. Also, make sure to see your surgeon too. ...Read more
I got knee debridement feb last year, finished physio 2 months ago knee was okay, started back running, last 3 weeks knee painful an small swelling?
Knee pain: I recommend that you go back to see your physician to get a better idea of the cause. They may recommend any number of things including testing, continued physical therapy, or a a scaled-back exercise regiment. Unless there is any details that I am unaware of, in general, medications like ibuprofen can be helpful for pain and swelling as well as icing the knee. I wish you the best of luck. ...Read more

I had hip arthroscopy & full debridement 3 weeks ago. In the last 24 hrs I've had inceased pain & dull ache in my calf muscle should I be concerned?
Surgical cleaning up: See prior answer regarding debridement in general, regardless of where in body. In oral cavity, debridement would be recommended if any area was very infected, macerated, extensively built up plaque. Ask the dentist why it has to be done, what is the process that it involved, and how much does it cost. ...Read more
It can: The most important issue facing you is how much and for how long. Depending on the status of the dental pulp before the debridement procedure, it could vary quite a bit. I usually tell people to expect 2 to 3 days of intermittent otc analgesic use but if it does not respond to those meds or lasts longer, they need to be seen and evaluated for additional treatment options. Talk to the dentist. ...Read more
