    You haven’t had your teeth cleaned in 4 years so I would not be surprised that your pockets have increased. Tartar left on your teeth irritates the gums and in that amount of time can cause a lot of inflammation and therefore the increase in pocket depth. But the good news is that if you get back on a regular routine, the pockets should get back to normal. Why did not having insurance prevent you from getting a cleaning? You still probably got your hair cut and your car maintained and you probably don’t have insurance for those things. Sorry, but it bugs me when people say that they can’t get dental treatment because they don’t have dental insurance.
