Returning To The Dentist After A Long Absence

When you keep up with ongoing dental exams, you receive valuable preventive care at a professional level, and you are kept current about the state of your oral health. By staying in the habit of seeing your dentist, you can avoid problems that might call for more involved restorative dental work. Unfortunately, people can find themselves taking a long absence from their dentist’s office. If you have allowed your dental visits to lapse, you may be worried about what your dentist finds upon your return. With effective care at home, you can limit your risks, but you should know that you could have active issues with tartar, or tooth decay. 

Neglecting Regular Dental Exams Can Allow Problems To Develop

The trouble with the formation of tartar, and the development of tooth decay, is that your daily care will not be able to eliminate the threat. Tartar can be too stubborn to remove when your only form of oral care is through at-home cleaning practices. Once a cavity has developed, it will continue to grow until professional care is given. If you wait too long, a small amount of decay could become serious enough to require a root canal!

What To Expect If Your Dentist Identifies Problems

When you return to the dentist’s office for a review, they may identify issues that need professional treatment. This is not just a question of if you need work done on cavities. Your dentist can also treat signs of gum disease, or help deal with jaw problems caused by TMJ dysfuntion.
