Dental hygiene is extremely important. Visiting your Wall, NJ, dentist, Dr. Corey Stein, should be as regular as visiting your primary care physician or OBGYN. At Wall Family Dental, Dr. Stein provides his patients with several services to revitalize and rejuvenate their function and appearance.
5 Signs It's Time To Visit the Dentist
- Cavities! If you notice pain or even a hole in your tooth, you need a dentist. Yes, it's that simple. If you don't take care of cavities immediately, you may have more serious issues in the long run, like gum disease and tooth loss.
- Bleeding gums whenever you brush your teeth. This could be a symptom of gum disease, especially if it's accompanied by bad breath, receding gums, and tender gums. If gum disease isn't treated during the early stages, it may evolve into a more serious issue, like periodontitis that may cause tooth loss.
- A broken or knocked-out tooth requires immediate dental attention. You can suffer from a broken or knocked-out tooth in any number of ways, like an accident or a sports injury. Your Wall dentist can fix this issue to restore function and appearance.
If you have ongoing medical issues, like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or eating disorders; or if you'd undergone medical treatment, like radiation, chemotherapy, or hormone replacement therapy.
If you notice spots and sores, your dentist will examine any sore that lasts a week or longer. Mouth sores include cold sores and candidiasis. Mouth spots and sores vary in their severity and cause.
Preventive care is the most important way to care for your teeth. Be sure to visit your dentist for biannual cleanings and exams, and brush and floss every day.
