If you are wondering whether you should see our dentists for a concerning symptom or issue, consider these common signs that it’s time for a dental visit at our Hoboken practice:

It’s been more than 6 months since you last visited. Most people should visit the dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. Some people benefit from more frequent visits, but the standard is 6 months. If it’s been more than 6 months since your last appointment, it’s time for another visit even if you aren’t experiencing any dental problems.

You are experiencing teeth sensitivity, pain, or discomfort. Any uncomfortable symptoms should be checked out by our dentists. Catching dental problems in their early stages is always a good idea because problems are usually treated most effectively in their early stages. These symptoms may be the early signs of cavities, gum disease, a TMJ disorder, or other issues that our dentists diagnose and treat.

You are feeling self-conscious about your smile. Feeling good about your smile is an important part of your wellness and quality of life. At our dentistry practice, our cosmetic dentists will help you determine which treatment or combination of treatments will renew your confidence in your smile. We perform an array of cosmetic dentistry treatments that fit various budgets, goals, and expectations.

You have chronic bad breath, jaw swelling, gum sensitivity, or some other atypical symptom. Give us a call if you have developed any new dental symptoms or situations, and we will determine the cause. We believe you deserve great dental health, so let us know if anything unusual arises. We are personally committed to describing all of your options and empowering you to make decisions about your dental care.
