Full Mouth Oral Prophylaxis (FMOP)

For personalized advice and treatment recommendations, consult with your dentist to determine the best FMOP schedule for you and your family.

What is Full Mouth Oral Prophylaxis (FMOP)?

Full Mouth Oral Prophylaxis (FMOP) is a comprehensive dental cleaning procedure that involves the thorough cleaning of the teeth, gums, and entire oral cavity. This preventive treatment is essential for maintaining oral health, preventing gum disease, and ensuring a clean and healthy mouth. FMOP is typically performed by a dental hygienist or dentist and is recommended as part of regular dental check-ups.

Benefits of FMOP

  1. Prevents Gum Disease: By removing plaque and tartar buildup, FMOP helps prevent gingivitis and periodontitis, which are the main causes of gum disease.

  2. Improves Oral Hygiene: FMOP provides a thorough cleaning that goes beyond regular brushing and flossing, reaching areas that are difficult to clean at home.

  3. Fresher Breath: Removing plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the mouth helps eliminate bad breath and leaves the mouth feeling fresh and clean.

  4. Enhances Aesthetic Appeal: Polishing the teeth removes surface stains, resulting in a brighter, more attractive smile.

  5. Early Detection of Oral Issues: The initial examination during FMOP can help detect early signs of dental problems, such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer, allowing for prompt treatment.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    FMOP is a comprehensive dental cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans the teeth, gums, and entire oral cavity. It aims to prevent oral diseases and promote overall oral health.

    It is generally recommended to have FMOP done every six months as part of regular dental check-ups. However, individuals with a higher risk of dental issues may need more frequent cleanings (every 3-4 months).

    FMOP helps prevent gum disease, improves oral hygiene, freshens breath, enhances the aesthetic appearance of teeth, and allows for early detection of dental issues.

    FMOP is generally not painful. Some patients may experience mild discomfort during scaling, especially if there is significant tartar buildup or gum inflammation. Local anesthesia can be used to minimize discomfort if necessary.

    An FMOP appointment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of cleaning required and the individual’s oral health condition.
