A guide to common dental problems

How to spot trouble Here is a quick guide to common dental problems. You should visit your dentist if you have these warning signs.

Warning SignThe Problem?
Bad breath that doesn't go awayThe cause might be gum disease, food, drinking, smoking, medicine you are taking or a health condition. If you cannot get rid of bad breath with daily brushing and flossing, see your dentist.
Your gums bleed when you brush or flossIf you just started to floss, a little bleeding is normal. But if you bleed almost every time you brush or floss your teeth, see your dentist.
Dry MouthFor women, menopause may be the cause. It is also a side effect of many common medicines. It does not feel good and it can make dental problems worse. You need to tell your dentist if you have this problem.
A tooth that is a little bit looseA loose tooth could be caused by gum disease or by a blow to the mouth. In any case, it is a serious problem. You should see your dentist.
A sore mouthA sore mouth might be caused by false teeth that don't fit well. It could also be from leaving false teeth in overnight. "Burning mouth syndrome" is a problem that affects some older women. Not eating the right kind of food may also be the cause.
Bleeding that you can't explainMouth sores that don't heal in 7 to 10 days
White or red patches in your mouth
Feeling numb or sore inside your mouth
These symptoms may be signs of oral cancer. See your dentist right away.
