No matter what reason they had for stopping coming in for dental care, now is the time to restart that care. The longer you wait, the worse any problem you have in your mouth is going to get.
Go In and See a Dentist As Soon As You Can
When something is wrong with your body, you go in and get seen right away. When something is wrong with your car, you take it right to a mechanic. The same priority needs to be given to your mouth. If something is wrong, you need to get seen.
If you have gone years without dental treatment, it is almost a guarantee that you need at least a thorough cleaning and possibly some cavities filled. You likely need more care than just that, as well.
Your mouth needs to be taken care of in the same way that you take care of your body. It protects you from feeling sick, and it keeps you healthier when germs are introduced to your body. Your mouth helps you eat and speak properly, plus it gives you shape to your face. You need to take care of your teeth as best as you can, and you need to go in and see your dentist every six months.
No matter how long it has been since you've gone to the dentist, now is the best time to go in and be seen. Waiting even longer is only going to make any potential problems you are facing even worse.
