A week ago i had an emergency dental appointment due to an abscess. During the appointment the dentist suggested I seek an appointment for a scale and polish as i have receding gums, and my teeth are quite loose and at risk of possible tooth loss eventually. The abcess seems to have gone but i still have some mild pain surrounding my front 2 teeth, which are the loose teeth. I have booked with a private dentist for a scale and polish, but im incredibly nervous to go ahead because of the pain i am already experiencing and worried about making things worse, or there being something else underlying. Would a scale and polish help ease the pain im currently experiencing? Advice would be greatly appreciated.
