Are you having a hard time enjoying snacks, drinks and meals lately, because of dental discomfort? When you brush and floss, do you ever notice bleeding? As you look in the mirror, are you troubled by the appearance of deep discoloration, especially within the crevices of the teeth? These are all warning signs of potential dental problems, from cavities to gum disease. Fortunately, if your tooth or gums are in need of restoration, a dentist can help improve your comfort and your confidence!
Don’t Ignore Warnings of Dental Issues
Though every person experiences dental problems differently, there are a number of common warning signs that the smile could be in trouble. Bleeding gums, for instance, can be indication of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, which is a chronic condition that impacts millions of Americans.
Heightened sensitivity and discomfort can also be indication of problems, such as cavities. Even deep discoloration and staining can be symptoms of enamel erosion. Chronic dry mouth or bad breath are also warnings of trouble.
Enjoy Long-lasting Restorations
Fortunately, if your smile is in need of restorative treatment, your dentist can likely help to restore your comfort. In many cases, particularly if you seek treatment quickly, you can even help to prevent the need for more extensive restorative treatment or tooth extraction.
For instance, if a cavity is detected and treated quickly, a minimally invasive filling is usually sufficient for saving the tooth and restoring one’s comfort. In the case of chips and cracks, porcelain crowns are often a great solution, and one that is natural-looking and lasting.
