To Tell the Tooth #2: "What are Some Early Warning Signs You Might Have a Tooth Problem?"

Depew Dentist Near Buffalo, Cheektowaga, Lancaster & Orchard Park

It’s time once again to play the Forestream Dental quiz: to tell the tooth. Today’s question:

What are some of the early warning signs you may have a tooth problem?

We all tend to brush aside some minor aches and pains, but if you have a little toothache that persists for more than a couple of days, it’s worth having it looked at.  A mild toothache can be like a check-engine light for your mouth. Toothaches can progress and what was just a little irritating can become very painful — and almost always on a weekend, when you’re on vacation, or some other equally inconvenient time.

Here are a few warning signs:

  1. Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  2. Pain when chewing
  3. Constant soreness
  4. Red and inflamed gums

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, come see us and let us check it out. You’ll be glad you did, especially if we can catch a tiny cavity early and fix it with a tooth-colored filling instead of a more invasive treatment like a root canal and crown. Give us a call here at Forestream Dental. In the long run it will save you time, pain and money.
