There are oh so many people who rely on waiting for pain to arrive before they think something could possibly be wrong with their smiles. While we don’t want you to feel hyped up every single day, worrying that something could be wrong with your oral health, we do want you to take a more proactive approach than simply waiting for a toothache to occur! This is important because pain won’t necessarily always arrive as a warning sign. If you’re wondering how to keep on your toes in regard to your smile health (and you’re also wondering why you can’t just wait for signs of something being wrong) this is very easy for us to explain and for you to quickly grasp!

A Problem Can Exist Without Obvious Symptoms

You can have a minor problem, moderate problem, or a very serious problem in your smile. What you might not have accompanying that problem, however, is any obvious sign at all that something is wrong! This is why we always remind our patients not to wait for changes like toothaches. If you notice one, of course, it’s most certainly time to tell us you need a visit. However, the absence of pain or abnormalities doesn’t necessarily mean things are in perfect condition!

Symptoms Can Show Up But Not Mean What You Think

About those times when a toothache does show up: We don’t want you to think that they rarely happen. They happen quite frequently! However, we also don’t want you to panic or make any assumptions if you do end up in pain (just like we don’t want you make any assumptions if you’re free of discomfort). Just remember: The discomfort could point to anything! It could be minor or much more serious. The very good news is that it doesn’t matter because we are here to help you! Come on in! We will be gentle, compassionate, and we will fix whatever is ailing you.

Preventive Visits Take The Guesswork Out (And Prevent Damage)

Don’t want to worry that something is wrong when your smile seems perfectly well? Don’t want to deal with toothaches in the future? No problem. Come see us for your preventive care. It’s the ultimate key to keeping your smile healthy and to finding out if any small change has occurred (that we can address before an issue impacts your tooth).
