Listen when your mouth talks!

Your mouth has many ways of letting you know that something may be wrong. When we ask patients if anything is bothering them, we find out they’ve had symptoms for a while! If you have any of the symptoms we’ve listed below, please make an appointment to come see us. We want to make sure that you not only maintain a beautiful smile but a healthy one as well.

Pain in Your Mouth

This can be a toothache, gum pain, or something you can see/explain.

We all know that pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong;  the same is said about your mouth. You should never ignore tooth pain. Do not let it go on for days; chances are it will not just go away.

A toothache can be a sign of decay, a crack in a tooth, or an infection. One thing we know is that oral pain isn’t something that usually gets better on its own. Don’t wait. Dont suffer. Dont risk your health. Call the dentist so they can get to the “root” of the problem!

Bleeding Gums

Whether your gums are bleeding when you eat, brush or floss, it is important to mention to your dentist or hygienist. Bleeding gums is not  uncommon, but that does not mean that it is normal or should be ignored. If you notice blood when you eat, brush or floss, it can be an early sign of gingivitis or gum disease. It is a sign that a conversation with the dentist about your oral health habits is needed. Your dentist or hygienist will inform you what can be done to get your gums healthily again.

Tooth Sensitivity

Occasional tooth sensitivity is not always a sign of a problem, but it is important to discuss your symptoms with your dentist or hygienist. Tooth sensitivity to hot, cold or sugary foods can be a sign of tooth decay. However, tooth sensitivity can also come and go naturally over time. If you have persistent sensitivity, be sure to mention it to your hygienist or dentist at your next visit. It could be something as simple as needing a softer tooth brush.

If you think something is wrong with your teeth, gums or mouth; trust your instincts. It will be easier and usually less expensive to address your problem if you take care of it early. Don’t ignore it and let it get worse! We will never belittle or lecture you for not taking good care of your mouth; instead we will focus on finding a solution that best suits you.
