Dangerous Issues That Seem Harmless

As humans, we are constantly making on-the-fly decisions throughout our days. Coffee or no coffee with breakfast? Take medicine for a headache or wait for it to go away? Worry about your oral health symptom or give it some time? When it comes to the last of these, as you can probably guess, we don’t generally suggest ignoring symptoms. While they may seem perfectly harmless to you, they can often imply that something much more serious is happening! Let us decide for you what’s really happening.

Yucky Breath

This might be something you laugh off for a while. Or, something that bothers you but that you just shrug off and try to mask. If it’s an issue that’s lasting for more than a day or two, then it’s not because you had one big garlic-infused meal. It’s because some oral health detail is not on track. See us!


Yes, snoring is something that can sound quite hilarious and that may yield lots of jokes. The problem is that even though it may have humorous aspects associated with it, the issue can also derail your sleep, cause exhaustion, encourage dry mouth, and may even suggest you have sleep apnea. Don’t ignore this. See us about it soon.

A Little Sensitivity

When your tooth is killing you, it’s easy to contact us to schedule a visit because you figure something’s definitely wrong with your oral health. When it’s just a little sensitivity, it’s easy to cover up your concern with rationalizations. Don’t do this! Talk with our team instead, so you know you’re doing your ultimate job in protecting your smile health.
