3 Signs That You May Need To Go To The Dentist

3 Signs that you may need to go to the dentist...As soon as possible.

The sooner you identify the problem, the easier it will be to prevent a more serious problem from developing (like needing a root canal).

Here are 3 signs that you might want to see Dr. Tenaglia:

1. Pain- This is the most obvious. If your teeth hurt, that source could very well be a cavity.

2. Sensitivity- If you are noticing that a spot in your mouth is becoming sensitive to hot, cold or sugary foods, this could be a sign of a cavity.

3. Bad breath- If the cavity is really bad and has had time to fester, this can cause bad breath. Once an infection sets in, it can produce a bad smell.

Don't wait...Visit us at the first sign of pain, sensitivity, or bad breath, no matter how small the problem may seem.
