What Happens if I have not Visited the Dentist in Several Years?

Not attending dental appointments for several years can allow teeth ailments to develop unnoticed. This could lead to cavities, periodontitis (gum disease), or even a tooth extraction. However, it is never too late to visit Singla Dental! One treatment your hygienist may perform at your initial cleaning is debridement.

Debridement Development

Missing numerous dental cleaning appointments could cause an excessive buildup of plaque and tartar on your teeth. Singla Dental will use debridement, which is the removal of heavy plaque and tartar, so Dr. Rupesh Singla, DMD can examine your teeth more thoroughly. If you have a form of dental phobia or have sensitive teeth, Dr. Rupesh Singla can use an anesthesia or sedation during this process to ensure comfort. It is important to remember that completing an examination with an excessive plaque or tartar buildup may be difficult and inaccurate.

During and After Your Appointment

Singla Dental will conduct debridement with hand instruments and an ultrasonic device that uses high-frequency vibrations and water to loosen the plaque and tartar from your teeth. After the treatment, you will need to schedule a follow-up appointment to develop a customized and comprehensive periodontal treatment plan.
