Do You Need a Checkup?

Are you busy? Honestly, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear that you are. It’s a normal part of life. But through all the chaos, do you still make time for your teeth? Of course, this includes taking a few minutes every day to brush and floss but it’s also very important to visit your dentist once every six months for a routine checkup. In fact, patients who neglect their checkups can be surprised by what a dentist finds. If you haven’t visited your dentist for the last six months, we recommend going soon. Today, we’re happy to list a few ideas on when you should visit your dentist—regardless of when you saw one last.

If your mouth is hurting, you should visit your dentist, regardless of whether the pain is in your jaw, teeth, gums, neck, or face. Similarly, if your teeth are sensitive to temperature, it may be because your enamel has worn down. Similarly if you have recurring headaches, your dentist may be able to help.

Similarly, if your gums bleed when you clean them, you should visit your dentist soon. Despite what you’ve heard, this isn’t normal. In fact, if you notice swelling gums, you may also notice sensitivity, pain, or potentially the loss of your teeth. Similarly, if you have a sore that won’t heal you should visit your dentist. Mouths typically heal quickly, so when they don’t, you may need to schedule an appointment.
