Have you been deliberately postponing your routine dental visit?


Are you waiting for a dental problem to come up?


Don't let excruciating pain be the only reason to take you to the dentist.


Here are some signs that require a dental visit soon:


Bad breath


Everybody gets garlic breath once in a while, but if you notice that you have bad breath all day long and it doesn't respond to brushing your teeth or using mouthwash, it's likely you have an infection in your mouth, either gum disease or an infected tooth.


Tooth sensitivity

 

If you feel discomfort in your teeth every time you have anything hot, cold, sour or sweet then you should visit your dentist as soon as possible to know the cause of it and to get the accurate treatment.


Swollen/bleeding gums


Swollen gums are a symptom of gum disease. If your gums are painful, swollen, pulling away from your teeth or bleed when you brush or floss, you should see your dentist as soon as possible.


Pain in the tooth


Toothache pain can range from tolerable to excruciating. When should you see a dentist for tooth pain? Constant pain is a sign that you should see a dentist not next year, not next month but as soon as possible.


Visible sores in the mouth


Mouth sores could be a symptom of a disease or a disorder, infection from bacteria, virus or fungus or result from irritants caused by braces or denture or sharp edge of broken tooth or filling.
Spots or patches on the cheek and tongue could be a pre cancer sign due to the over use of tobacco and betel nut chewing.


Not smiling confidently?


Discolored or missing teeth are making you hide your smile? You hesitate while laughing out opening? Then it is time for a smile makeover. Visit your cosmetic dentist and get your teeth flawless and shiny white.


Even if you don't have any of these problems, do visit your dentist regularly every 6 months to keep your teeth as healthy as you can. Make an appointment today!
