In order to keep your teeth, gums and mouth healthy, you should visit a dentist on a regular basis. Usually, most people will see their dentist for a check up once a year and it may be more often than this if you have been experiencing problems with your teeth.
You should also consider visiting your dentist in the following situations:
- You have persistent toothache that won’t go away. This could be an early sign of something like an abscess. It could also indicate that you need a filling.
- Your teeth have suddenly become more sensitive. The solution could be as simple as changing your toothpaste but it is best to have a dental examination in case you do need a filling.
- Your gums are sore or bleeding when you brush. See and dentist and they may recommend you then see a dental hygienist who can clean thoroughly up into your gums.
