The Yonge Newmarket dental open evening gives you the perfect opportunity to see a dentist with any oral health concerns. You should definitely see a dentist if you are experiencing any of the following.

 

Toothache

Toothache is often a sign of something serious. Even if your toothache subsides before you have time see a dentist, book an appointment — the cause of the pain may still need treating.

 

Sensitive Teeth

Sensitivity is painful and requires treatment. Sensitive teeth may be due to a cavity, an exposed root, or a damaged tooth. Only a dentist can provide you with a diagnosis and the right treatment.

 

Swollen or Bleeding Gums

Inflammation of the gums or bleeding when you brush is not normal. These tend to be caused by a buildup of plaque and often indicate that you have gum disease.

 

Bad Breath

Another sign of gum disease is persistent bad breath. If you have good oral hygiene and brush regularly, ask your dentist about what could be causing your bad breath.

 

Metallic Taste

Often accompanying bad breath is a metallic taste in the mouth. This is a sign of mild gum disease, or gingivitis. Your dentist can offer treatment for the condition to prevent it progressing to periodontitis.

 

White Spots

As your tooth decays, white spots form where the enamel is dissolving. Typically, white spots are the only symptom in the early stages.

 

Lumps or Discolouration

You also need to pay attention to your mouth. If you notice any lumps, discolouration, or abnormalities, you need to see a dentist as soon as possible.

 

Canker Sores

Canker sores usually disappear on their own after a couple days. If any fail to clear up, see your dentist.

For any of these issues, as well as other inconsistencies in your mouth or on you teeth, visit Keep 28 Dental Centre to receive a checkup with a Newmarket dentist.
