What Happens After a Year Without a Dental Appointment
When a year since your last dental cleaning and exam finally rolls around, a lot can happen. Small unnoticed cavities can start to become more serious. Early signs of gum disease can develop to a more severe level of gum disease. Plaque and tartar accumulation will grow even more which can result in cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.
When dental problems go unnoticed for over a year, they will only continue to grow worse and affect your overall health.
