When to call for a referral or an appointment 

Sometimes, damage to your teeth can be so subtle they can only be detected by an exam and x-ray.

Here are a few signs it’s time to call your dentist for a referral or contact us directly for an appointment:
 
Dental pain triggered by hot, cold or chewing
Spontaneous pain
Increased tooth pain during the night or while laying down
Drainage or bleeding from the gums
Swelling in the mouth or tongue
Rotting teeth
A bad taste in the mouth, even after brushing your teeth
Loose teeth
