Dental cleanings and exams are important for keeping a healthy mouth, but these are not the only reason you should see the dentist.
There are many other times where a dental visit may be necessary, below are some other common reasons for a dental appointment.
Issues with your gums
Gums that are bleeding, inflamed or bright red should be looked at by your dentist. These may be signs of gingivitis.
Pain or Sensitivity
Pain and sensitivity in your mouth should never be ignored. If you notice any pain or sensitivity, be sure to talk to your dentist.
After receiving a restoration, such as crowns, fillings or dental implants, they should be examined by your dentist shortly after the treatment to make sure they are functioning correctly.
