Infections:

There is always some risk of infection when undergoing oral surgeries thus chances of a secondary infection is common. However, if proper medication and post-operative instructions followed, then oral care infection contained. Hence, to avoid this one must never neglect a scheduled follow-up dental appointment. Visit your dentist today if you haven’t!

Dry Socket:

Dry sockets are painful after an extraction as the blood clot may get dislodged or there maybe lack of clots in the socket. Therefore, follow-up dental appointments are required to check the healing process and for re-dressing to reduce the pain. However, in case of grossly carious extracted teeth, and over retained root piece is of great concern that require regular follow-ups.

If your follow-up appointment is missed or ignored; then you may experience a miss fortune of ignorance which includes multiple augmented oral issues.

Bone Loss:

If a tooth has fallen-off due to poor oral hygiene or trauma, then the bone in that area starts to shrink causing bone loss. However, follow-up dental appointments are mandatory in such cases to discuss better dental treatment plans with the dentist that will preserve the bone density for dental implant. 

Prolonged Orthodontic Treatment:

Braces or orthodontic treatment enhances the smile of an individual by aligning the teeth. Dentists need to make occlusal adjustments throughout the treatment procedure to ensure the bite is aligned. Without follow-up dental appointments braces may not fit properly, treatment may take prolonged time and further orthodontic issues may develop its secondary infections. 

Therefore, a follow-up dental appointment is a must to check for complications and other oral-related problems that can occur at any time after the dental procedure done. It’s also designed to assess the oral hygiene of patients and how they are maintaining post operative dental care.
