With the COVID-19 pandemic turning the world as we know it upside down, many of our patients have stayed at home for the past 18 months and have missed their regular check ups and cleanings. With the World opening back up again and less people working from home, patient’s oral health has become more of a priority – especially if their oral health has declined during the pandemic and they feel ashamed of their smile.
Patients who regularly attended check ups and had their teeth professionally cleaned to prevent plaque build up will now be looking to book an appointment, especially with all the food and drink they plan to consume over the holidays!
Regular visits are important to not only keep your teeth clean, but also prevent gum disease. If your dental hygiene routine has been lacking due to the impact of the pandemic, you may find that your gums bleed when you brush and may look swollen. These are symptoms of early gum disease and need to be seen by a dentist as soon as an appointment is available, as if left untreated gum disease can lead to tooth loss.
A build-up of plaque, especially on the back of your teeth, can turn into tartar – thick, discoloured plaque which can only be removed by a dentist due to how hard it solidifies. Tartar can lead to bad breath in patients as it cannot be removed easily even with brushing and flossing. Bad breath is also a sign of decay and cavities.Back to Blog
