Symptoms That Mean You Need A Visit Right Away!

Sometimes, you aren’t sure if calling us up right away when something seems slightly different with your smile is what you should do (though, of course, our Virginia Beach, VA team is always happy to see you). However, we like to remind patients that when there’s a very obvious symptom that’s made an arrival in your mouth, it is absolutely your best decision when you call us up for a dental visit. Hoping for some examples of these very “obvious” moments? We’ve got them!

You Have Pain That’s Worse Than It Was

When you have a bit of pain, we know that you may be very good at convincing yourself you don’t need a dental visit. You could be right (though, of course, we still suggest a checkup). However, when you have pain that has become more severe than it was, this is a very major sign that it is 100 percent time to schedule time to meet with us! The sooner, the better, so we can eradicate the discomfort by fixing the problem.

You Have A Mystery Symptom

Our team wants to make sure you remember something important about symptoms: Just because you cannot figure out what they are, just because they don’t seem to be too bothersome, or just because you happen to be very good at ignoring them doesn’t mean you should just not worry about them. Any change with your oral health that you recognize but cannot completely identify as “safe,” is reason to schedule a dental visit with us! Remember that even if it’s nothing at all, we will be much happier to see you than to learn later that you didn’t come in.

You’re Extremely Stressed About Your Smile

Maybe you know what’s going on with your smile. Perhaps your gums are inflamed. Maybe you have a canker sore that won’t go away. Maybe your jaw joints hurt and you know that you really need to see us. Whatever the actual problem may or may not be, if it is causing you to feel stressed, then it means you need to come in. We know that you may feel hesitant either due to dental anxiety or because you don’t want to deal with it. However, we remind you:

  • We are compassionate, kind, and want only for you to feel better!
  • You really need to come in for a dental visit because a problem that needs attention will only get worse, which will cause more stress.
  • There’s always a way to help your smile!
