Top Reasons to See a Dentist


Posted on 1/11/2021 by Tigran Khachatryan
Top Reasons to See a DentistEvery may face oral health issues at one time on another. Dental issues can have varying symptoms and it is often very difficult to accurately diagnose them at home. That is why you must never miss your routine six-monthly checkup with Dr. Tigran and Dr. Furca at A Smiling Heart Dentistry.

Common Reasons You Need to Visit a Dentist


Some of the most common dental issues that Americans face include:

•  Toothache: In many cases, an aching tooth means a deep cavity. However, sometimes it can also indicate gum disease. In addition, an impacted wisdom tooth or an abscessed tooth can also result in painful symptoms. Toothache may also be accompanies by facial swelling.
•  Gum Disease: Gum disease is characterized by painful puffy red gums that bleed when you brush your teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can cause irreparable damage to the soft and hard tissues of your mouth.
•  Dental Restorations: If you have fillings, dentures, crowns, implants, or bridges, it is important that you visit us on a regular basis so that we can check your dental health and ensure your dental restorations are in good condition.
•  Eating Trouble: If you are having trouble biting or chewing, there may be something wrong with your mouth or jaw. Contact us for an urgent appointment so that we can diagnose the condition and treat it appropriately.
•  Dry Mouth: A dry mouth may be caused by certain medication you may be taking. If you cannot change your medication, we can prescribe you something that can reduce the dryness of your mouth.
•  Tobacco: People who consume tobacco in any form suffer from bad breath and may be at higher risk of other oral conditions, including oral cancer. People who use tobacco must never miss their dental appointments.
•  Sores: If you detect sores or lesions in your mouth that do not go away on their own after a week or two, you should get them checked. Although most sores are not malignant, some may indicate oral cancer.
•  Pregnancy: During pregnancy, oral bacteria may proliferate increasing your risk of gum disease. It is important for pregnant women to continue their routine dental appointments to prevent periodontitis which can have adverse effect on the mother and the baby.
•  Jaw Pain: If your jaw hurts or makes a popping or grating noise when you open or close it, you may have a temporomandibular joint disorder. We can recommend you various treatment options for this disorder.

Even if you think your teeth are in good condition, it is still important to visit us at least once every six months. Certain dental conditions remain hidden and only make themselves known when they have grown and become painful. At A Smiling Heart Dentistry, Dr. Tigran and Dr. Furca can detect these issues and treat them in their early stage.
