Did you know that there are some smile problems that you may brush off because you think they’re just “no big deal” … that actually require the attention of our Riverside, CA team? You may guess that you’re very attuned to your body and smile and, as a result, could never possibly overlook a symptom or issue! So, before you end up ignoring something that could mean you require dental care and you require it right now, your Riverside dentist has some instances to share with you that might usually cause you to just think to yourself, “Oh well” but that should really cause you to set up a visit!

Very Serious Canker Sores

How’s that canker sore doing? If it’s something you have experienced before, it’s not very serious, it’s not any bigger than one you’ve dealt with in the past, and you can tell that it’s healing within a couple of weeks, then you’re in good shape. However, now let’s talk about a sore that meets one or more of the following characteristics: It’s extremely large, it seems severe, it’s very red, it’s extremely uncomfortable, it doesn’t seem to be healing in the least. If you can say that one or more of these is true, then do not hesitate to see your Riverside dentist, so you can find out how to move forward (and to get that sore to go away).

Rubbing Dentures

You may guess that since dentures rely completely on the suction in your mouth and since they’re not completely without a bit of wiggling every now and then, if they start to rub against your gums, maybe it’s normal. However, we remind you: If your denture seems like it never fit, like it suddenly fits differently, or is simply rubbing even in one tiny spot, it’s time to see your Riverside dentist. You need a repair or replacement (and you need it soon, so you don’t end up with oral health damage).

Dental Work That Feels “Off”

Does your dental filling, dental crown, bridge, or anything else feel different or off? It may require attention from your Riverside dentist, so don’t hesitate to call! Otherwise, you may be encouraging additional problems.
