You Have Pain: Pain or swelling in your mouth, face or neck can mean several things.
Your Gums Are Acting Up: If your gums are puffy, they bleed when you brush or floss, or you have a family history of gum disease, it’s time to make an appointment.
You Try to Hide Your Smile: Whether you’re self-conscious about a missing tooth or hoping for a brighter smile, don’t be shy about talking to your dentist.
You Have Ongoing Medical Issues: Make your dentist part of your team if you have a medical condition (such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, eating disorders or are HIV positive), or you are undergoing medical treatment (such as radiation, chemotherapy or hormone replacement therapy).
You’re Pregnant: It’s safe to go to the dentist while pregnant. In fact, pregnancy can worsen some dental problems, so don’t miss your regular checkup.
You’re Having Trouble Eating: Difficulty chewing or swallowing is not the norm. Try eating soft or liquified foods until you can see your dentist.
