If You Experience These Symptoms, Call Our Dental Office

Dental Office

It is crucial that you see our dental office if you notice any unusual activity in your mouth. It is easy to assume it will go away shortly, but oral health issues are actually very important to address immediately. You may be showing signs of periodontal disease or damaging decay in your teeth. These problems can be avoided by a simple visit to our office to get things checked out. Oral hygiene is important to your overall health, not just to the prevention of tooth decay, so you should see a dentist immediately if you notice any of these signs.

Tooth discomfort: This may sound like an obvious sign, but you would be surprised at how many people ignore tooth pain until it has turned into an irreversible problem. If you address tooth discomfort immediately, you may save your tooth and avoid future dental visits for crowns or even future tooth loss.

Tooth sensitivity: This is also a commonly ignored problem. Sensitivity to hot or cold foods or beverages could mean tooth decay. If you are experiencing sensitivity or discomfort, visit our dental office right away.

White spots on teeth: Tooth spotting is a sign of tooth decay. Some people may have natural discoloration in their teeth, but if you notice unusual spotting you should visit our office so that we can check things over.

Changes of color in mouth or canker sores: If you notice discoloration in your mouth, you could be experiencing signs of gingivitis or periodontal disease. Greying of gums could mean you have a serious infection. Canker sores that last for a long period of time may also be a giveaway that you have bad bacterial growth or infection in your mouth. Discoloration or discomfort in your mouth may even mean you have mouth cancer. In our dental office, we can examine your mouth to determine if you have any issues that need to be addressed right away.

Dry mouth or bad breath: Bad breath, dry mouth, and even funky tastes in your mouth could mean you have gingivitis. If left untreated, it could lead to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is one of the most common culprits of tooth loss. You can save your natural teeth now by seeing a dentist.

Gum swelling and irritation: Redness, swelling, or bleeding gums are definite signs of infection. It can also mean that you have developed tartar under your gum line. This can lead to periodontal disease and teeth loss. Get your gums checked out as soon as possible if you are experiencing this sign.

All of these symptoms can be detrimental to your overall health, not just your oral health. Treat yourself to a dentist visit to ensure you don’t experience worse problems in the future. At our dental office, your health is our top priority, and it should be yours tooth. Proper oral hygiene is so important and can save you a world of trouble if you just pay attention to how you feel and take care of your teeth and yourself at home.  If you notice any of the signs above or any other odd changes in your mouth, gums, or teeth, notify our office straight away to receive the proper care you deserve.
