Debridement is a medical term which refers to the extraction of dead, injured or contaminated tissue to better the healing possibility of the remainder of the tissue which is healthy. Very frequently this type of tissue extraction is performed by surgical means, but other processes are in existence, those which are mechanical or autolytic in nature.

In the area of dental hygiene, debridement means the extraction of dental tartar as well as plaque which has collected on the teeth. In this case hand tools and ultrasound equipment is used fro the purpose of debridement.

Debridement is performed on those people who have an excess amount of plaque and calculus accumulation on the teeth, which mainly happens if one has not visited the dentist in many years.
