When Good Teeth Go Bad - How to Tell if You Have a Cavity

Posted on 9/10/2016 by Fady Ebid
A man embarrassed of his smile.How do you know if something is wrong with your teeth? Many times oral issues arise with no outward signs or symptoms.

Issues like gum disease are notorious for being hard to detect because they typically cause the patient no signs of discomfort.

When you do start to notice that something is changing in your mouth, it's usually time to have it checked out.

Does it Hurt When I do This?

It's fairly common for things to move around in your mouth. That being said, if you experience pain or discomfort in your mouth for over a week it's definitely time to give our office a call at 770-514-0440 and setup an appointment.

Sometimes things will change a bit in your mouth and produce some minor discomfort for a day or two. Your teeth aren't cemented in place, they have a bit of play to their movement and occasionally things in your mouth will change enough that you feel a bit of a shift.

These minute changes will often resolve after a day or two. It's the ones that last more than a week that you ought to be concerned about.

Check With Us

When you experience pain or discomfort and setup an appointment with us, we will make sure to discuss with you what the history of the issue has been. It will be important to recall any fine details of when you first started noticing a difference.

For example, if you were eating popcorn at the movies and got a kernel stuck between your teeth and the discomfort of the kernel never went away even after you removed it, that's noteworthy.

To help prevent issues like this from arising in the first place, regular oral maintenance is key. This means brushing and flossing every day and coming in for a professional cleaning and exam at least twice a year.

Please contact us if you have any questions about your oral health.
