So, the American Dental Association suggests that individuals visit their dentists at least twice per year, but while twice a year is great for some, others may need to make more frequent appointments for things such as periodontal maintenance, extra cleanings, or because they have a condition, such as sleep apnea or TMJD that requires extra attention. But, when else should you visit Millennium Smiles?
Pain. Many things can be the source of tooth pain, but all of the reasons mean you need to see a dentist. The most common reasons include cavities, tooth sensitivity, an abscess, or injury, but also pain caused by tooth clenching and tooth grinding. Pain can also be caused by gum disease or heavy-handed brushing. If you’re experiencing tooth pain or discomfort, do not delay. We repeat: do not delay. Call us to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
Sensitivity. Are you living with tooth sensitivity? Does it hurt when you drink hot coffee or iced tea? Do you ask for “water without ice” when out to eat? If you’re avoiding your favorite food and drinks because your teeth hurt, you don’t have to live with pain. Call Millennium Smiles today and get seen by Dr. Korous. Sensitive teeth can be caused by tooth decay, enamel loss, gum disease, injury, an exposed tooth root, injury, or heavy-handed brushing. Dr. Korous will be able to help get you out of pain and back to eating ice cream in no time.
Damage. Do you have a tooth or teeth that are chipped, cracked, or fractured? If so, schedule an appointment as soon as possible to get checked. During your appointment, Dr. Korous will be able to assess the damage and see if your tooth can be saved. If your tooth cannot be saved, Millennium Smiles offers a wide range of cosmetic dental solutions to restore your smile.
Dry Mouth. Did you know that chronic dry mouth is a problem? If you are living with long-term dry mouth, no matter how much you drink or rinse, you may have an underlying health condition that can negatively impact your oral health. Call now to set up an appointment to discuss your dry mouth concerns.
Bad Breath. Bad breath happens to everyone at some point, but bad breath that won’t go away no matter how much you brush could mean that you are living with tooth decay or gum disease. Talk to Dr. Korous about what you’re experiencing and get a solution for chronic bad breath.
If you’re experiencing any of these conditions, call us today at 972-987-4899 to get an appointment.
