When you describe how your oral health is doing, when you reflect on your dental hygiene, and when you think back through your day, one adjective that should not come up in regard to your smile? The word “hurt.” Nothing should feel uncomfortable, painful, sore, tender, or anything else that denotes a less than comfortable sensation! If you notice that your usual function or care is not feeling good at the moment and that pain is in some way coming into play, our Conroe, TX team suggests you contact us right away. As for examples to help you recognize that your sensations may not be quite right…
Biting Into Food
Taking a bite into the food you’re eating should not hurt. If you’re biting into something too tough or hard, then it’s time to make more mindful choices (and, if pain is serious, it’s time to see us for a dental checkup). If biting into just about anything or the act of chewing is causing your smile to hurt, then again, it is most certainly time to call our practice to schedule a visit! Good oral health means optimal function and comfort, so keep this in mind if you notice things changing.
Drinking Something Cold Or Hot
Drinking something hot or cold (or eating something hot or cold) should not lead to serious feelings of discomfort. Of course, if you have somewhat sensitive teeth, then you may feel a bit of a zing with extremes in temperature. However, pain related to hot or cold often point to a potential infection, decay, or other type of damage to your oral health. The lovely news is that we can fix your issue with dental care! You just have to call us and come in first!
Feeling Pain When Caring For Your Smile
Does it hurt to care for your smile? This includes brushing your smile gently, as we suggest, flossing, etc. If so, then it’s time to head to our practice for a dental checkup right away! While your smile should not be experiencing any type of pain throughout the day, it’s important to note that this always includes your dental hygiene. Whether you like the feeling of brushing and flossing or you feel impartial, remember that it should never include negative sensations. If it does, this may point to a treatable problem like gum disease, decay, or otherwise. So, see us soon!
