Sometimes, you find that if you take matters into your own hands, you can sort out your smile concerns. For instance, you realize that you’re not very happy with your dental hygiene, so you figure out what’s making you unhappy, you make changes (like using a new type of toothpaste), and you solve the dilemma! In other cases, however, you may have the sense that you’re probably not supposed to be addressing your smile health concerns. Instead, you get the feeling you should probably contact our Silver City, NM team to schedule a dental checkup. Of course, we encourage you to trust those instincts (and we happily offer some helpful examples of times you really need to see us).

Persistent, Bad Breath

You may find that you feel a little unsure about what to do when you have very bad breath that just isn’t clearing up. If it’s persistent, then you start to feel that something must be wrong (or, at least, there’s something that requires professional care). You’re correct! If you have halitosis, we encourage you to get in touch with our team as soon as you can to schedule a dental checkup, so we may fix it!

A Toothache

No matter what, whether you think you might have injured your tooth, you are guessing you have a cavity, or you have no idea why your tooth hurts, it’s always smart to visit us for a toothache. Generally speaking, pain is your indicator that something isn’t right to some degree. Whether it turns out to be a very minor issue or something more serious, getting an accurate diagnosis and advice from our team during a dental checkup is the way to go!

Other New Sensations

Dealing with other new sensations but not really sure what to do about it? A popping jaw? Uncomfortable gums? A sense of pressure?

A dental checkup will give you the information you need!

Puffy Gums Or Visual Changes

When you can see a change with your smile, you should contact us right away for a dental checkup. Maybe your gums appear inflamed. Maybe your tooth looks cracked. The earlier you receive care, the better.
