10 Signs You Need To See A Dentist
Your gums are acting up – If your gums are puffy, bleeding when you brush or floss or your family has a history of gum disease, it’s time to make an appointment.
You hide your smile – if you’re self-conscious about a missing tooth or wishing for a brighter smile, make an appointment to discuss affordable options.
Maintaining previous dental work – if you’ve had fillings, crowns, implants or dentures, make an appointment to ensure everything is working properly.
Chronic health issues – make your dentist part of your medical team. Medications and treatments for other diseases can affect your teeth.
Pregnancy – shifting hormones can affect your dental health. Make an appointment to ensure your teeth are as healthy as your baby.
Difficulty chewing or swallowing – make an appointment if you are experiencing these symptoms. Avoid crunchy, difficult to chew food until you’ve seen the dentist.
Dry mouth – this could be a sign of a medical condition. Your dentist can determine a proper course of treatment.
Smoking or chewing tobacco – these are harmful to your dental health. Your dentist can treat the damage from past use and recommend how to stop using tobacco.
Jaw pain – if you have popping or your jaw is painful when opening and closing, your dentist can evaluate your needs.
Sores and spots – if you have frequent canker and cold sores, you may have an infection that the dentist can address.
