Going just one year without seeing a dentist could mean that small cavities are slowly developing in size and you may be developing periodontal disease without even realizing it. If you’re constantly experiencing bad breath despite brushing, this may be a sign that there is something serious going on.
After two years of not seeing a dentist, your cavities may have progressed beyond simple fillings. You may be experiencing tooth pain or sensitivity. After five years, the tooth issues may be serious enough that you experience bone loss. The symptoms will only progress more as the years go by without seeing a holistic dentist.
Remember that your oral health is closely tied to the rest of the body. Poor dental health may lead to a greater risk of developing issues in the cardiovascular system and more.
