Why you shouldn’t fear a belated return to the dentist

General dentistry is essential to keeping our teeth and gums healthy and plays a vital role in preventing the conditions that lead to gum disease and tooth loss. So even if it has been a while since your last visit, it’s never too late!

Here we explain why visiting your dentist after a period without dental treatment shouldn’t be feared and can help to achieve the happy and healthy smile you’ve been looking for.


No lectures

Whether it’s been six months or six years since you last saw a dentist, new patients will always experience a friendly and non-judgemental welcome. Often patients who haven’t seen a dentist for a long time are concerned that they will receive a lecture – but this just isn’t the case!


Assessment and advice

Assessment and advice

On your return visit your dentist will simply inspect your teeth and gums and assess the health of your general oral health, including checks for oral cancer. Your dentist will then offer some simple advice on how to improve your dental health routine and explain any treatment that is required.


Identifying issues

Identifying issues

When you return to a regular appointment pattern this gives your dentist the perfect opportunity to discuss any concerns you have about pain or sensitivity and to examine your teeth and gums. Your dentist will quickly identify any potential issues and put a treatment plan in place.


Getting back to basics

However long your absence from regular dental care, you will be surprised how quick and easy you will find it to return to a healthy oral health routine. Supported by regular check-up appointments, many ‘stay-away’ patients experience an almost immediate improvement in oral health.
