Symptoms of a Dental Problem to Pay Attention ToOne of the keys to solving oral health problems is to spot them as early as possible. The sooner you spot the dental problem, the sooner we can offer treatment for it.

There are usually more options when a problem when you spot any problem early but knowing how to spot a problem is not something everyone is familiar with. There are symptoms to watch for that can signal a problem before it gets worse.

Looking for the Signs
The biggest problem people face when it comes to spotting dental problems is that they find a way to ignore it. If they feel pain in their tooth, they may wait to see if it goes away. If it does, they may assume they do not have a problem. There are other signs that may or may not mean there is a problem that needs treatment. It is possible to correct some of the signs of a dental problem without seeing our dental professionals. No matter what it takes to fix the problem, it is worth learning some of the signs.

•  Pain - This is the most obvious sign that something is not right anywhere in the body. Pain could result from a cavity, loose teeth, a bad filling, an abscess or many other dental problems. It is not a sign to ignore even if it goes away.
•  Swelling and redness - There are many reasons for swelling or redness around the teeth and gums. It could be a minor issue such as irritation of the gums. More serious issues such as an abscess can also cause this sign.
•  Bleeding - Bleeding around the teeth and gums could mean a problem with gum disease, but it can also come from brushing too hard. Either way, it is something to correct.
•  Bad Breath - Poor oral health can result in chronic bad breath
