Top 4 Reasons Why You Rush to See Your Dentist

Visiting your dentist for routine check-up is still one area that for most of us mere mortals need improvement and does not come to us naturally.

We still prefer to rush to a dentist’s office when one of the following happens:


Yes, the legendary and almost mythical toothache, it is so common and it starts with just a small dot of tooth decay. Who could ever believe that your small tooth could provoke the type of pain that has the power to immobilize you? Toothache is one of the most popular reasons why someone who has not visited the dentist for years would immediately pick up the phone and dial the next available dentist in his area. The reason why you may be experiencing toothache varies, and with it also varies the type of treatment.


Abscesses many times go unperceived, however one of the most frequent signs is tenderness around the gums and eventually it can also lead to toothache. An abscess is a collection of dead tissue, live and dead bacteria and white blood cells which will make tissues within the tooth swell. It is usually the result of either trauma to the tooth or tooth decay that has progressed deep into the root.

Accidents happen, you might be strolling in the park when someone comes over and knocks you down out of the blue or you could be practicing extreme sports. Teeth can be knocked out, chipped and they can also be broken, causing you shock, pain and even anxiety. And in cases like these it is utterly important that you contact your dentist right away.

What can you do in the midst of an accident involving teeth?

Bad Breath

Socializing is an important part of our lives, and in most societies there are standards for hygiene and beauty. Having minty fresh breath gives you the confidence to speak in public, to smile and to feel that you are accepted or acceptable. It is no wonder that when mouthwashes, floss and daily brushing cannot give the desired results you visit your dentist to see what else can be done.
