Heavy staining and calculus deposits exhibited on the lingual surface of the mandibularanterior teeth (the surface of the lower front teeth that faces the tongue), along the gumline. Debridement would remove the stain and build-up.
In dentistry, debridement refers to the necessary removal of plaque and calculus that have accumulated on the teeth in order to maintain oral health. Debridement in this case may be performed using ultrasonic instruments, which fracture the calculus, thereby facilitating its removal, as well as hand tools, including periodontal scaler and curettes. Debridement may also be performed using saline solution (further information needed).
