When Not to Put off a Dental Appointment
There are some instances in which you should make a dental appointment right away. The longer you wait, the more likely your problem will continue and even worsen. That’s why you should stay on top of all of your dental care needs. Here are five times not to put off your oral health.
#1: Broken and Chipped Teeth
If you have a chipped tooth, place that chip into a glass of milk and call our office for a dental appointment. If possible, we may be able to reattach the chipped portion right away. Otherwise, we can use dental bonding to restore your teeth. Don’t put off this type of repair since it can worsen over time.
#2: Tooth Pain
If you have tooth pain, that’s an indication that you need dental care right away. There are many potential causes of this. Even if taking over-the-counter pain medications helps, the underlying cause of the problem remains. Your tooth pain may stem from:
- Dental infections
- Exposed nerve root
- Gum disease-related pain
- Damaged teeth
#3: Tooth Falls Out
If a tooth comes out of your mouth for any reason, it’s essential to protect that tooth and then to call our dental office. In many cases, we can replace the tooth and secure it back into place. It is important for us to cleanse the area and remove any additional bacteria from this area in all situations. If you have significant bleeding that does not stop, it is best to go to the emergency room first.
#4: Bleeding and Painful Gums
If you have bleeding gums, that’s an indication that periodontal disease exists. The sooner you take care of this, the more likely you are to avoid costly and painful problems down the line. Gum disease treatment can be very useful, especially at the start of the process. Make a dental appointment with our team to determine what level of care you need.
#5: Preventative Care Needs
Dental care does not stop at just coming in when there’s a problem. You should also make a dental appointment at least once every six months to ensure your oral health is maintained. If you have not done so, call our offices now.
While with us, we may recommend the use of preventative dental services that can improve your smile and prevent the onset of problems down the road. These preventative dental appointments may help you to preserve your oral health for years to come. We may recommend services such as:
