We question a lot of things these days. With the Internet widely available, many times we just “Google” something to find our answer. Unfortunately, many people do this with health and dental health concerns to diagnose themselves. The Internet is great for a lot of things, but it has also contributed to a great deal of people not seeking the medical treatment they need because they found an “answer” online. Dental health concerns (as with general health concerns) are best left diagnosed and treated by the professionals. Whether you have a minor dental concern or a major concern, it is always important to call your dentist and schedule an appointment for the near future.
Any type of dental concern to you is a concern to your dentist. Here is a list of concerns that warrant an immediate call to your dentist:
- Tooth pain
- A cracked or chipped tooth
- A dark spot on a tooth
- Extreme tooth sensitivity
- A permanent tooth that wiggles or feels loose
- Swollen, tender gums
- Bleeding gums
- Sores, bumps, or any type of spot that is located on the tongue, cheeks, or gums
- Extreme dry mouth
- Jaw pain that is severe and/or causes you to lose movement functionality
Your dentist would rather see you for a small concern than wait until your dental situation has become an emergency and requires drastic measures. In many cases, a seemingly small concern has underlying causes that need to be addressed. mali . Catching an issue early is the best way to begin successful treatment.
