Visiting the dentist twice a year is a great way to maintain your oral health. But sometimes, additional visits are needed. If you’re experience any of these five signs, you should schedule a dentist visit soon.

Tooth or Gum Pain

Lingering pain isn’t normal, and you shouldn’t have to live with it. If your teeth ache consistently, it could be a sign of some form of contamination. Bacteria could be targeting the nerve in the center of your teeth, which in turn, fast-tracks the progress of tooth decay. Persistent pain or swelling in your teeth or gums could be a sign that one of many different things is wrong, and you should have your dentist check for infection or gum disease.

Did you know inflammation in the gums causes an estimated 70% of tooth loss?

Persistent Bad Breath

If proper oral hygiene isn’t improving your breath, you may have a bigger problem. Give your dentist a call to get an appointment today.

Your Teeth Compromises Your Daily Routine

A tell-tale sign of cracks in your tooth is when you feel a sharp pain when chewing on hard food. This is a sign of developing cavity or gum disease, so it’s in your best interest to head to your dentist.

Difficulty Chewing or Swallowing

Truth be told: this is not normal. In order to avoid aggravating the problem, you should only eat soft foods or liquids until you see the dentist.

Increased Sensitivity to Hot and Cold

New sensitivity to certain foods or temperatures can occur when decay moves through the enamel to the center of tooth and could also be a sign of a different problem—such as teeth grinding or a filling that needs to be fixed.
