Oral Health Warnings That Are Important Not To Ignore
At Emerald Dental, we are passionate about the state of your oral health. One of the best ways to be sure you have excellent oral health is to maintain your routine oral hygiene examinations in our office. Another way to be sure you have optimal oral health is to care for your teeth and gums properly throughout the year. In addition to brushing and flossing, it is important to be mindful of any changes in your oral health. Thankfully, your mouth often warns you when you are experiencing a problem with your teeth or gums. If you notice something that doesn’t seem right, we recommend contacting our office as soon as possible. Would you know what warning signs to look for that can tell you there is a problem with your oral health? We are here to help!
If you find yourself cringing when you eat and drink anything that is extremely hot or cold, you may be suffering from sensitivity. If you find that you experience tooth sensitivity regularly, you may have a problem with your oral health. Tooth sensitivity can be an indication that you may have decay, gum disease, or another problem.
If you regularly find signs of pink and red when you rinse after brushing, you have bleeding gums. Bleeding gums can be caused by something as simple as food stuck between your teeth. However, if you have bleeding gums regularly, it can be a sign of poor oral hygiene or gum disease.
Changes to Your Teeth and Bite
If you notice your bite has suddenly changed, or if you notice anything else unusual about the appearance of your teeth, such as a sudden change in color, a crack or chip in one of your teeth, or if any of your teeth feel loose, it is important to visit our office.
