How To Take The Headache Out of Oral Health

Warning Signs You Should Never Ignore

Nearly 9 in 10 disease can cause symptoms in your mouth. That puts your dentist on the front line for spotting serious health conditions developing silently in your body. This is the one reason it’s so important to see your dentist at least two times a year for dental cleanings and checkups. When caring for your teeth and gums at home, it’s also important to watch for new problems in your mouth. They may be warning signs of more serious conditions in your body.

Symptoms To Look Out For

  • Gum, tooth, or jaw pain
  • Bleeding gums
  • Loose or lost teeth
  • Reoccurring bad breath
  • Sore, irregular patches, or lumps in your throat

If you have any of these warning signs, seek your dentist right away. Your dentist can diagnose specific dental issues that may be developing. Or he can also refer you to another health care professional for further evaluation and treatment.
