Signs You Need to Go to the Dentist

Dentist Serving Calgary, Cochrane, Airdrie and Nearby Areas of Alberta

Perhaps the best way to ensure proper oral health is through twice yearly teeth cleanings and examinations from one of our Alberta dentists. During these visits, not only are your teeth fully cleaned, your entire mouth is examined for early signs of minor and major oral health issues.

Of course, not everyone visits our office every six months and, even if you do, problems can occur in between visits. So how do you know when it’s time to schedule an appointment?

Signs You Need General Dental Care

You should contact Alberta dentist Dr. Gordon Chee if you have a dental emergency. This can include a loose tooth, a tooth that has fallen out, or a tooth that has been fractured, chipped, or cracked.

In addition to dental emergencies, you should contact our office if you experience:

  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Tooth sensitivity or pain
  • Chronic dry mouth
  • Oral sores that do not go away
  • Halitosis or persistent bad breath

You may also choose to come to our office if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of TMD such as jaw pain, clicking or popping while chewing, or frequent debilitating headaches.

Signs You Need Dental Care for Cosmetic Issues

We are pleased to offer a wide range of dental services to meet the needs of all of our patients. Many people come to our office for dental services of a cosmetic nature including tooth whitening and porcelain veneers.

You may need to visit our office for cosmetic services if your smile distracts from your appearance or if you feel uncomfortable or awkward when your teeth are visible. Common reasons to seek cosmetic dentistry include teeth that are:

  • Discolored
  • Unevenly spaced, sized, or positioned
  • Chipped or cracked
  • Crooked

During your initial consultation with Dr. Chee, all of your aesthetic issues can be addressed and the right solution for your smile can be determined.
