Strongest signs that you must see a dentist
Oral health should be one of the strongest priorities of a person. This prioritization doesn’t happen until it’s way past the restoration stage, in the reconstruction stage.
But we’re here to save you a little fortune and a great deal of pain, and probably for your entire family as well – let us look at some of the strongest signs that you must see a dentist.
You can’t chew food & drink cold beverages like you used to
Teeth aren’t supposed to be easily irritated when you chew or drink. In examining the ways, if your teeth crown is weak, attempting to chew hard food will easily irritate the canal nerves. The direct connection of the nerves to the tooth will be the reason why you can’t drink anything cold – see a dentist, they’d fix it easily for you.
There are occasional single-sided migraines
Single-sided migraines felt on one side of the face, are signs of decayed cavities, usually along with cheek swellings. Although the headache would be temporary for now, it’s going to get permanent soon or later. Once it gets permanent, the cost and the pain you’d have to sustain will be much more than it is right now.
You were told/hinted your breath stinks
What would happen when you’re trying to impress a girl you’re seeing across the bar, and 20 minutes into the conversation, she leaves visibly shrinking her nostrils. Although that’s a more ambiguous way, your close friendswon’thesitate to be open with you.
But you don’t anyone with the 20-second rule in checking the actual smell of your break – lick your palm, wait 20 seconds, and smell it; that’s how your mouth smells for everyone.
Visibly observable yellowish teeth
Remember we talked about the two stages of restoration and reconstruction? Yellowish teeth belong to the restoration area. But the problem is that no matter how hard you brush your teeth, you won’t be able to wash off the yellowish hue.
For some teeth, that’s as ‘white’ as the teeth get. Does that mean you should settle for that? No! Not when you can whiten your teeth or even use veneers.
You can’t remember the last time you visited the dentist
If you’re asking yourself the question how often should I see the dentist? then you should probably see one already. The question itself sounds like you’re trying to justify getting late to do what’s long overdue already. When you don’t remember the last time you visited the dentist, it’s a clear depiction of the position of priority for the dental health of your life. But as per the question, the healthy frequency is at least once a month, but two is the recommendedfrequency.
The bottom line is that brushing your teeth every morning just might not be enough. That’s why you should see your dentist when the time is right. As a responsible adult who prioritizes self-care, maybe you can make it your new year’s solution to visit your dental clinic at least twice a month – that’s how you keep smiling brightly until the end.
