Would you rush to your dentist if you cracked a tooth? What if you had a crippling toothache? Clearly, there are some situations where you should get to a dentist as quickly as possible. But, there are many lesser-known circumstances that you should make a dental visit for. To help you, we’re happy to list a few other ideas on why you should consider scheduling an appointment.

You should visit your dentist while you are pregnant. Sadly, some dental problems may worsen during pregnancy. Fortunately, dental treatments are safe during pregnancy at any time—though, it is best to have dental treatment during pregnancy. In fact, research indicates that some women who have dental work during their second trimester have fewer issues with nausea and discomfort than others.

We recommend visiting your dentist soon if you have a medical condition. The health of your body and the health of your teeth are intertwined, so your dentist may be able to do something to help you cope with some conditions. For example, we recommend visiting your dentist if you have diabetes, an eating disorder, or cardiovascular disease. Please contact your dentist or your doctor to learn more about how a dentist can help with certain conditions.

A sore in your mouth is another reason you should consider visiting a dentist. If your sores last for more than a week or two, a dentist can help you. There can be many reasons for these sores, such as infection, bacteria, fungus, a virus, or irritation from braces or dentures.
