Signs That You Need to See a Dentist

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Dr. Frank K. Sioda
Signs That You Need to See a DentistYou should never wait for signs and symptoms before visiting a dentist. It is good practice to visit a dentist once in a while for an oral health examination. The dental expert may be able to detect conditions that are not yet manifesting in terms of signs. You may be surprised to know that problems such as root canal infections start way earlier before they even manifest. For this purpose, it is in your best interest to visit a dentist regularly.

With that said, there are a few red flags you may look out for to know when you should visit a dentist. The signs to look out for include:

Weak and Shaking Tooth

If you realize that one or more teeth are shaking, you should visit a dentist for examination. In children, teeth become loose when they are about to shade their milk teeth. In adults, a loose tooth is a sign of a problem. It might be caused by receding gums or an infection in the gum.

Painful Teeth

If you feel a sharp pain in your tooth when taking food or when drinking water, you should see a dentist. Explain to your dentist the situation you are going through for proper examination. The main cause of such pain is tooth decay that has touched your root canal.

Excessive Snoring at Night

Snoring at night might also be a sign of poor dental health. In some people, the dental arrangement in their mouth inhibits proper breathing while asleep. As a result, such individuals may breathe heavily or snore in sleep.

Stinking Mouth

Lastly, consider visiting a dental expert if your breath is constantly stinking. Stinking breath is usually a sign of a decaying tooth or a bacteria infection. Early diagnosis may help deal with the problem to avoid further complications.
