If you haven't done anything for that long, its going to hurt like hell anyway. I don't really have good gum genes, so I have to floss every 4-5 weeks or so or else I will get bloody. Probably best to ease into it and get in some self-flossing before you go in. They should just knock people out with gas if their gums are that bad.
