When to Visit the Dentist (Other than Tooth-Hurty!)

When to Visit the Dentist

You’d think the idea of needing to visit the dentist is as obvious as a sore tooth, but you’d be surprised! Many diseases or threats to oral health fly under the radar and harbor potential harm to your gums and teeth. Don’t be subjected to these evil doers - here’s how to know when it’s time to go to the dentist!

When to Schedule an Appointment

Sensitivity
Hot and cold being too much for your teeth

Gum Health
If your gums are puffy or tend to bleed when you brush or floss

Bad Breath
There’s a consistency of bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth 

Family History
You have a family history of gum disease, tooth decay, or oral cancer

Other illnesses
You have been diagnosed with a cardiovascular disease, eating disorder or HIV+

How Often Should I Visit?

Even if your oral health is in check, a dentist will have a deeper insight into the health of your teeth and gums. To ensure that your smile is clean and without threat, it’s best to see a dentist every 6 months.

What About My Kids?

Though it may seem arbitrary to send a child with baby teeth to a place like the dentist (won’t they just lose them anyway?) - it can be a very essential experience! Not only are you teaching your child of the importance of health and oral maintenance, but you’re also showing the child that a trip to the dentist can be stress free and even fun!

If you are having any oral health issues ranging from medical to cosmetic, call us today for a free consultation.
