In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we can often shrug off minor changes in our mouths – whether involving the teeth, gums or even the inner cheeks and lips.
However, it is important to keep an eye on your mouth to ensure that there are no serious health issues or dental issues at hand. Read on for more.
Mouth abnormalities to be cognizant of
While we may be more aware of our body’s health, we should all also be aware of the health of our mouths.
Sometimes, we may be brushing our teeth and notice a mark or sore on our gums. Or perhaps a tooth that feels sore. Maybe even your mouth is drier than normal. Though you may not put much though into instances like these, they should not be ignored. And while they, most times, may not be indicative of anything serious, sometimes they are.
If you notice any of the following, it is wise to make an appointment with Dr. Milan:
-Thick patches in the mouth or throat
-Pain or numbness in the mouth
-Hoarseness that is chronic
-Difficulty moving the jaw or tongue
-Gum or inner cheek changes
-White spots on your tongue
-Teeth that have become spaced
Such changes can mean that certain oral conditions are present – from gum disease and decay to sinus issues or even more serious issues like early mouth cancer in rare cases.
The bottom line is prevention is protection!
