Are there any types of concerns you shouldn’t ignore, you wonder, when it comes to your oral health? The answer is: Of course not! When something seems off or wrong, it’s always wise to check in with your Virginia Beach dentist to ensure all is well. However, today, our Virginia Beach, VA team is really focusing on those things that you may be prone to ignore that you really never should! In addition, it may make you feel a bit better to know that these possible concerns are often overlooked by many patients, which is why we like to bring them up!
Feel really weird telling us that you have tired teeth? We understand. It sounds a little strange. However, we also remind you that when your teeth just feel sort of worn out or you feel like your smile is sleepy, it could have something to do with bruxism disorder! This is what’s going on (usually without you noticing it) when muscle movements cause you to grind or clench your teeth. It can lead to sensitivity, TMJ disorder, damage, and more. See us if you have any type of strange sensation!
You might think very little of it when you realize your gums look like a slightly different shade. Maybe they’re a slightly different pink or they look a tiny bit aggravated. Unless you can trace it back to some very hot food or beverage you accidentally consumed before it was cool enough, you should really come in to see your Virginia Beach dentist! Your gum shift may be the result of a periodontal problem that requires care before it becomes a very serious issue! Remember that any shift in your gums, from the way they feel to the way they look (or otherwise) is good enough reason to pick up the phone and schedule a checkup with our team!
Maybe your breath is just a little bit yucky. Perhaps you have very bad breath. Wherever it falls on the spectrum of “not good,” your Virginia Beach dentist reminds you that it’s worth coming in to learn more about it. Unpleasant breath can develop when your smile isn’t clean enough, when you have dry mouth, when you have a case of decay or infection, and more. If you notice a change, come in!
