If you chip your tooth and you try to just pretend everything is okay for a few days, a few weeks, or even a few months, this esthetic problem isn’t going to lead to any major complications for you or your oral health. You might not like how it looks but you’ll be A-OK. On the other hand, our Corona, CA team reminds you that there are those issues that, when overlooked for even a few hours or days, can suddenly yield serious consequences. As always, your Corona dentist would like to keep you super-informed, so you can do your absolute best to protect your smile!

#1: Never Ignore Gum Changes

Your Corona dentist reminds you that though you might not really want to do anything about your puffy gums, your red gums, your bleeding gums, etc., it’s actually extremely important that you do so. While some things don’t require immediate care, those that need periodontal care do! We say this because the first stage of gum disease (called gingivitis) is something we can cure. Unfortunately, if you ignore it and it progresses, it becomes a type of treatable yet irreversible inflammation, so see us soon!

#2: Never Neglect Smile Trauma

Did you break your tooth? Knock a tooth out? Whatever happened, don’t try to just pretend that everything is okay. Instead, pay attention to the issue and address it immediately by contacting your Corona dentist for emergency dental care. Immediate care for traumatic smile concerns is necessary to rescue teeth and other tissues and to stop further, serious consequences from following.

#3: Never Procrastinate When You Need A Root Canal

Did we tell you that you need a root canal for your tooth? If so, your Corona dentist reminds you that you have no time to spare. Ignoring serious damage or an infection will lead to the death and loss of your tooth and may even impact nearby teeth. Remember, this treatment is completely comfortable!
