For most people, putting off their next dental appointment is as common as the sun coming up in the morning. But when it comes to your oral health, the fact is that you simply cannot ignore it even when everything feels fine. This is even truer when you are dealing with something that you know deep down just doesn’t feel right.
We all know the obvious times when we have to go to the dentist and waiting just isn’t an option. These usually involve some type of emergency that is too serious or painful to ignore. Things such as an abscess, an accident that results in a lost or cracked tooth, a flare-up of TMJ, and numerous others are all common times when we just can’t wait for an appointment.
But there are other, more subtle reasons when we may not even know it is important to stop by and see our dental practitioners. That’s why we here at R+R Dental wanted to give our readers this short list of other reasons it may be necessary to come by and see an oral health professional, even if you don’t realize it:
1. A Persistent Bad Taste in Your Mouth
2. You’ve Recently Quit Using Tobacco Products
3. You Have Acid Reflux
4. You are Diabetic
5. You Regularly Have Headaches Upon Waking Up
6. You are Going Through a Pregnancy
