How Do I Know I Need a Dental Checkup?

If you have not visited your local dentist for a checkup in a while because there has not been any warning signs, you should still try to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.  If you wait until something hurts, it could be too late. It is much easier and cheaper to prevent dental disease than it is to treat it. Some warning signs could be sensitivity, discoloration, or plaque build up on your teeth. Other warning signs may include inflamed gums or gums that bleed easily. 

Gums Diseases, Root Canals, and Tooth Decays. Oh My!

Taking care of your oral hygiene will go a long way in reducing your risk of other health related issues, such as gum disease and cardiovascular disease. In the most severe cases, gum (periodontal) disease can spread from the gums to the bone that supports the teeth and cause tooth loss. Gum disease can be prevented if you maintain good oral hygiene, regular professional cleanings, and oral examinations. Periodontal therapy can take various forms, but the goal is always to restore diseased tissues back to health.

Signs you may need a root canal include severe toothache, pain with application of pressure upon chewing, prolonged sensitivity or pain in response to hot and cold temperatures, a dark discoloration of the tooth, and swelling/tenderness in the nearby gums. Root canal treatments are highly successful and are a relatively simple procedure involving one to three office visits. 

So what are you waiting for? Your oral health should never delay!
