When one of your teeth starts hurting, normally there are no questions what to do. You just have to visit your dentist. However, some dental problems are just as serious, but not everyone rushes to solve them. Here are 3 cases that indicate you must visit your dentist as soon as possible.
- Bleeding gums
If you notice that your gums bleed while brushing your teeth or you often feel the taste of blood in your mouth, do not delay. Treating bleeding gums and preventing periodontitis also means saving your teeth. Note: gum problems may lead to losing even healthy teeth.
- Your tooth aches after eating something sweet
If you feel pain while eating sweets, it’s probably a sign of dental caries. You may not notice any changes, just pain. However, it will not come by itself, and the situation can only deteriorate. As long as there is something to rescue, hurry to your dentist.
- Bad breath
If bad breath persists even after changing toothpaste and adjusting your diet, you should consult your dentist. It is likely that you have gum problems or decay. Unpleasant smell often means decay processes in your mouth. If your dentist does not find a problem, you should visit otolaryngologist. By the way, an unpleasant smell occurs because of unbalanced levels of sugar in your blood.
