3 Things to Expect If You Haven’t Visited A Dentist in Years



Sometimes, life can get busy. We understand that many people in Toronto have full schedules, and could find themselves neglecting key oral hygiene practices, such as simple dental appointments. However, your oral health should be a top priority. A visit to a Toronto dental office, such as ours, could help you prevent serious oral health issues.

If you haven’t visited a dentist in years, try not to worry. Our team of dental professionals have put together this blog so you can learn what to expect when you come in for your next appointment!

Extended Cleaning

You are likely to have plaque build-up on the surface of your teeth if it has been a long time since your last professional cleaning. It might take a hygienist some time to professionally clean your teeth if this is the case. To reduce your time in the dentist’s chair, you should brush twice daily and floss at least once each day.

Minor Gum Bleeding

Your gums might bleed when the dental hygienist begins flossing your teeth. Although this may seem unnerving to some, this doesn’t mean there is a problem. Gums bleed because they are not used to flossing. To reduce the bleeding and irritation, you need to floss at least once daily. 

All-Inclusive Oral Examination

Dr. Rob will inspect your mouth for cavities once the hygienist has cleaned your teeth. You should expect that you might have one or two cavities that require attention if you haven’t had an appointment for an extended period of time.
