In addition to glaring dental emergencies, there are a few less obvious indicators that your oral health may be at risk.
Here are three clues that you should probably head to the dentist.
1. Your Teeth Have Become Very Sensitive
Are your teeth suddenly extremely sensitive to hot and/or cold temperatures? Have you mentioned this to your dentist yet? You should! Not only may they be able to suggest in-office solutions, they will also be able to make sure that something more sinister is not going on in your mouth.
2. Your Gums Have Started Bleeding
First and foremost, you should make sure that you are not brushing too hard. Many people are!
However, dealing with bleeding gums can be scary. Pinning down the exact cause is best left to the professionals.
3. You Have Unexplained Pains, Aches Or Sores
If you have noticed anything strange or odd since your last DIY dental check-up, pencil in a talk with your dental office of choice. Not addressing oral care issues as they arise is a really bad idea.
Bye for now!
