When should I see the dentist?

July 12 2018

You probably schedule an appointment with your dentist every six months. However, this does not mean that those are the only times you should see the dentist. Below, Dr. Sato goes over a few reasons why you should contact your dentist.

Pain and Sensitivity

Pain and sensitivity should never be ignored. Feelings of pain or sensitivity tend to be signs of other dental health problems.

Gum Issues

Anytime you notice your gums are bright red, bleeding or inflamed, contact your dentist.

Dry Mouth

Saliva is our bodies natural cavity fighter. Because of this, suffering from dry mouth can quickly increase your chances of developing cavities.

If something doesn’t seem right

Besides the above, anytime something doesn’t seem right it’s better to be safe and let your dentist check for any issues rather than just ignoring it.
