We understand that it can be hard to make time to care for your smile properly. It can be especially difficult when it comes to finding time for a dental appointment. But, having a checkup every six months is critical for your oral health. However, even if you do have a checkup every six months—or if you haven’t had a checkup for a while—we recommend watching out for the following signs of trouble.

If your mouth is hurting, you should visit your dentist, regardless of whether the pain is in your jaw, teeth, gums, neck, or face. Similarly, if your teeth are sensitive to temperature, it may be because your enamel has worn down. Similarly if you have recurring headaches, your dentist may be able to help.

Similarly, if your gums bleed when you clean them, you should visit your dentist soon. Despite what you’ve heard, this isn’t normal. In fact, if you notice swelling gums, you may also notice sensitivity, pain, or potentially the loss of your teeth. Similarly, if you have a sore that won’t heal you should visit your dentist. Mouths typically heal quickly, so when they don’t, you may need to schedule an appointment.
