If you have a toothache, or if you damage or lose a tooth, you will naturally want to schedule an appointment with your dentist. But emergencies aside, there are other times when you should plan a visit to your dentist’s office.
Of course, you should see your dentist every six months for you regular cleaning and examination. Depending on your dental health, your dentist may want to see you more than twice a year. However, if any time that you notice a change in the color or texture of your teeth or other part of your mouth, you should let your dentist know. If you have chronic bad breath, or notice blood when you brush or floss, you should make an appointment to see your dentist.
Your dental needs change when you become pregnant. If you are pregnant or think you might be, you should let your dentist know. If you are diagnosed with a disease or medical condition, you need to talk to your dentist about how it could affect your oral health and dental care. Prescription medications can have implications for your teeth and mouth, and you should talk with your dentist about the medications you are using, including vitamins and herbal supplements.
Whether you have a problem with your mouth or not, you should always make sure that you take the time to see your dentist for your regular checkups.
