When it is Important to Call the Dentist Right Away

Of course, an injury to a tooth or major mouth pain are cause to go to the dentistry right away. But truth be told, there are other symptoms that may be less obvious that should not be ignored, either.

Keep reading for more on this important topic.

When you need to call the dentist

Though some people may delay seeking dental care if they are not sure it is warranted, it is always better to be safe than sorry.  

If you are experiencing the following dental issues, we recommend calling us right so that we can determine if immediate care is needed or not.

-Bleeding gums

If you notice that your gums bleed when you brush or floss, this could be a sign of gingivitis or even gum disease—both of which can eventually lead to tooth loss if not treated properly.

-Dry mouth

Saliva provides a defense against tooth decay and also keeps teeth and gums health. But chronic dry mouth can put you at risk of tooth decay or could be a sign of a more serious medical issue.

-Tooth sensitivity

If you find your teeth have become more sensitive than usual when drinking or eating, this could be due to gum disease, decay, tooth grinding or even an excessive amount of plaque—all conditions that need to be treated.

-Mouth sores

If you are experienced sores in the mouth that haven’t gone away within a week, you should talk to us, as this could be a sign of a more serious disorder or disease.
