Warning signs that you should never ignore

Many dental issues are asymptomatic and therefore unless you have regular check-ups with your dentist in Nottingham they may remain unnoticed and silently damage your teeth, until they become irreversible. There are many signs of dental disease such as toothache, bad breath, bleeding gums and sensitivity. These are warning signs! They are symptoms you should never ignore and require urgent attention by your dentist. If you are experiencing warning signs then the situation needs to be dealt with immediately and your dentist can carry out a full examination of your mouth, perform a professional clean where necessary and deal with the problem as soon as possible, to prevent further complications in the future.

Plaque and tartar

Most dental issues occur as a result of plaque build-up on your teeth which can sometimes be difficult to get rid of, especially in those hard-to-reach areas of your mouth and this leads to the formation of tartar. Tartar cannot be removed by brushing at home and results in further plaque build-up and also acid formation which results in cavities in the teeth and can lead to tooth decay and eventually result in tooth loss. The removal of tartar requires professional cleaning so speak to your dentist in Nottingham here at Hilton Dental Clinic to book an appointment with your hygienist. They will carry out a thorough examination and clean of your mouth, which helps ensure that your mouth is free of plaque and tartar and that your gums are healthy too.
