Signs You Need to See a Dentist as Soon as Possible

Dr. Jean E. Barthman has helped people with their dental problems for many years. She’s built a strong patient base in Redwood City, CA, thanks to her patient-centered approach to dental care.

Sometimes she notices patients hesitate about seeing a professional about their dental health issues. Ultimately, it’s best to see an experienced dentist about your problem. Below are some common issues people experience that require a dentist’s immediate attention.

You Experience Severe Mouth Pain

If you notice sharp pain around a tooth, your jaw joint, or your gums, it’s best to get that looked at by a dentist ASAP. There is no reason to live with excruciating pain, especially when relief may be a dentist’s visit away. As long as this mouth pain isn’t linked to a recent injury or accident that requires urgent medical attention, you should see a dentist right away.

You Have a Persistent Toothache

Some people may experience dull pain or general soreness in their teeth and gums. This is also a sure sign you need to see a dentist since it may be the early signs of a health issue that’s best addressed sooner rather than later. Even mild discomfort is something you should not be experiencing consistently.

Your Teeth Are Very Sensitive

Do you have trouble eating certain kinds of foods that are hard or require lots of chewing? Do beverages that have hot or cold temperatures give you trouble? These could be signs of tooth damage, cavities, or gum recession.

You Have Chronic Bad Breath

Is your breath bad even after brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash? This might mean you have an oral infection of some kind that needs professional treatment. Get it treated now instead of allowing your oral health to get worse.

You Notice Bumps or Lesions in Your Mouth

A bump or a lesion on your gums or tongue may indicate a major wellness issue. The bump may be an abscess that requires professional attention at our Redwood City practice. Failing to get treated may lead to the spread of bacteria throughout your system. An abnormal growth could also be the first warning sign of oral cancer, which is best diagnosed and treated in its earliest stages.

A Tooth Is Loose or Falls Out

Whether it’s caused by trauma or wear and tear, a loose tooth or a missing tooth should be taken seriously. If the tooth has fallen out, put it in a cup of milk or water when you visit our office. We may be able to resocket the tooth.

You Lose a Filling, Inlay, Onlay, Crown, or Veneer

If a restoration falls off or comes loose, it can contribute to pain, sensitivity, and the risk of further oral health problems. By coming to our Bay Area dental practice, we can put the restoration back or fashion a new one just for you.
