What Is Debridement?
If you have heavy plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth it's extremely important to attend to the condition. We may need to remove it through a process called debridement, using hand instruments and ultrasonic tools to dislodge the plaque and tarter from the teeth. Further treatments may be required depending on the level of severity.
Debridement is generally required when routine oral health care hasn't been practiced. People who haven't come in for a cleaning for a long while may be at increased risk.

"Without a doubt the best dental office I've ever been a patient of. The dentists and their hygienists are all very friendly and knowledgable, and they do their best to make you as comfortable as possible. I haven't tried other dentists in Eugene, but I know I'm not alone in my opinion here… definitely recommend!" ~ Timothy
"Dr. Vivona was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn't be happier with my experience. While I wish I didn't need dental work, my experience with her has been great. She takes her time to make sure she's properly diagnosing. While doing the work, she was gentle, thorough and explained everything along the way, making sure I was comfortable. I highly recommend her" ~ Audrey
"I was greeted as I was walking in the door by two wonderful assistants. The hygienist was wonderful and encouraging through the whole exam. Over all the staff is the best I’ve encountered through dental and would recommend Dr. Vivona to anyone looking for quality and gentle care." ~Kimmi
