7 Signs That You Need to Visit the Dentist

It is very important that you visit your dentist regularly so that they can monitor your oral health. There are, of course, emergency situations that may require you to see a dentist sooner than later, so if you notice any of the following signs, please make sure you contact your dental clinic immediately.

Loose Teeth

Contact your dentist immediately if you notice any loose teeth. Adults should not have loose teeth; however this can be the result of a traumatic injury, teeth grinding or an underlying gum infection. It can cause nerve and/or jaw damage, so this is a problem that needs to be addressed right away to ensure you do not lose any teeth permanently.

Dental Abscess

This is a very serious infection that can also be very painful, so contact your dentist immediately. Some causes of this infection can be untreated cavities, an injury, prior dental work, or gum disease. Symptoms can include a fever, puss, and swollen glands. Depending on the severity of the situation, surgery may be required, and your dentist can provide the necessary treatment to clear out the infection. If not treated immediately, an abscess can become very risky because the infection can spread to nearby tissues and can also cause a bone infection.


If you have a toothache, you should see a dentist promptly as they can provide you with emergency toothache relief. They can complete a proper diagnosis and recommend suitable treatment accordingly. If you are unable to eat or drink hot or cold foods and beverages, it means your toothache is severe, and bacteria can be present in your mouth.

Canker Sores

These are among the most common types of oral lesions, but if you have one that will not go away, it is a sign that you need to visit your dentist. They will perform a biopsy to ensure it is not cancerous and will monitor it going forward to see whether it grows.

Consistent Headaches

Oral pain can lead to head pain, and if left untreated, mouth and jaw pain can turn into headaches. Grinding or clenching your teeth at night can also cause painful headaches, so you may need to wear a nightguard if that is the case.

A Numb Tooth

This is a sign that an infection has spread to its root, so it is a must that you see your dentist right away. A root canal may be necessary, and your dentist can suggest the treatment that is most effective.

Aching and Bleeding Gums

If you see that your gums are aching or bleeding after flossing, it can be a sign of gum disease or gingivitis, so you need to see your dentist so that they can provide you with a proper diagnosis.
