Sometimes, something will happen with your smile that leaves you wondering if you should call us. In certain instances, it’s easy to stand back, observe the problem, and then tell yourself that waiting a few days is probably fine. In other cases, however, it’s important to simply call us immediately. There’s no time to waste because you might be putting your oral health’s future in harm’s way! Without further ado, become more acquainted with what constitutes a reason to pick up the phone ASAP.
#1: Your Gums Look Different
If your gums look different, you should call us. This type of symptom may point to a serious oral health problem, such as gum disease. Common changes may include puffy gums, red gums, purple gums, or bleeding gums.
#2: Severe Pain
Are you dealing with severe pain? This is a big red flag that something could be very wrong! If you ignore it, the issue will only worsen. So, pick up the phone, dial our number, and come on in for compassionate care.
#3: Persistent Pain
Maybe your pain is not severe but is certainly persistent. This is another sign that something is going on behind the scenes of your oral health that’s not entirely good news. See us as soon as you can, so we may provide a solution.
#4: Bad Breath Won’t Go Away
Bad breath that doesn’t go away for several days or weeks (or more) may suggest that you need our help because your own efforts aren’t working. Come in, so we may address any associated oral health issues.
#5: A Lump, Bump, Or Sore Shows Up
What is it? It’s probably nothing. The only way to know for sure? Come in to see us!
