What Oral Symptoms Indicate I Need To Visit a Dentist Soon

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Thomas Wold, DMD
The overall health of the mouth, teeth, and gums is oral health. Oral symptoms are the signs that show up, indicating that you should visit a dentist. As soon as these signs and symptoms show, you should consider visiting a dental hygienist or your dentist. This is very important to prevent further infection and damage to the teeth and gums. Below are some of the oral symptoms that indicate you need to visit a dentist soon. Loose, cracked, or Chipped Teeth Immediate dental care is needed for any tooth that becomes loose or otherwise damaged to retain your smile in good shape. Advanced gum diseases could lead to loose teeth. A toothache and the risk of losing the tooth may occur due to a chipped or cracked tooth prey to infection. The problem can be treated right away. Jaw Pain, Clicking, and Lockjaw A dentist should be contacted in the case of swelling and pain in the jaw. Stress on the jaw may be caused by an uneven bite or TMJ symptoms like clicking and popping sounds when you open and close the mouth. TMJ pain may be a serious issue causing you discomfort while eating. This may lead to a complete lock-up of your jaw. Mouth Injury Injury to the mouth may seem like a non-issue, but a visit to the dentist is important as soon as possible. Serious complications and infection can occur due to a broken tooth, which should never be ignored. Gums Issues Blood traits when flossing or brushing may signify a gum problem. The gums need as much attention as the teeth cause they play an important role in your oral health. In the case of bleeding gums, treatment should be started immediately to prevent further damage. Gingivitis is an early gum disease that can be treated and improved by good in-office cleaning. Conditions like cancer and diabetes can show themselves through the gums. Tooth Sensitivity Extreme tooth sensitivity is one of the most annoying problems, and most people suffer this in silence. There might be an underlying cause making your teeth sensitive, and it is important to seek treatment. If you are experiencing any of the above issues, please come see us right away....
