06 Feb 3 Dental Symptoms You Shouldn’t Ignore
Even if you take really good care of your teeth, you still need to see a dentist in Bradenton – or wherever you are living – for routine care. And, even if you have been brushing twice a day and flossing religiously, sometimes dental problems can arise.
You can be sure that the dental team at Bradenton’s Braden River Dental won’t judge. We know bad things can happen to good teeth. And we would never want you to put off getting the dental care you need because you are ashamed or because you don’t think it’s important.
If you put off dental care today, it could mean that you will be wearing dentures in Bradenton when you go out to eat and enjoy yourself.
- As Mouth Healthy reports, even something as seemingly innocuous as bad breath could be a sign of something serious. “Bad breath can be caused by what you eat, not cleaning your mouth, dry mouth, smoking or other medical conditions,” they say. “Persistent bad breath can also be one of the warning signs of gum disease.”
- A simple toothache might indicate you have a cavity; it can also be signal that you have gum disease. “In some cases, a toothache is a sign of an abscess or impacted tooth. A toothache should be evaluated by a dentist right away to determine the cause of the problem and prevent the tooth from dying.”
- If you have jaw pain or notice popping/clicking in your jaw it could indicate a number of different things. “Possible causes include sinus problems, toothache, arthritis, injury, teeth grinding, gingivitis or problems with your jaw like TMJ. Your dentist will conduct a thorough exam, which may include X-rays, to determine the source of the pain.”
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please contact Bradenton dentist Dr. Tiffany Boyd or your own Bradenton dental practice.
