A few weeks after your full mouth debridement, your gums will have healed and most inflammation will subside. Your gums may be a little sore right after the debridement since we clear them of any plaque and tartar, but any discomfort can be easily diminished with pain-relieving medicine.

You might need to come back for a second followup appointment so we can get any remaining plaque or tartar removed. Dr. Winter will let you know if this is necessary after your first treatment.
