Many of the problems you have inside your mouth are minor and temporary, like burning the roof of your mouth eating very hot pizza or bad breath after downing garlic toast topped with sardines. These problems are really nothing to worry about as they will pass in due time. But there are mouth conditions that should be cause for concern, a need to visit your East Brunswick dentist.


It is best you see your East Brunswick dentist at the very first signs of a toothache. Putting this off will not end very well for you. You could suffer serious pain, need a root canal or even lose the tooth altogether. Nobody wants that to happen.

Bad Breath

Bad breath from a garlic and sardine sandwich is one thing, prolonged bad breath is a warning sign that should not be ignored. Often, persistent bad breath can be resolved by more frequent brushing or quitting bad habits like smoking, but it could also be caused by gum disease. So go see your dentist.

Mouth Sores

There are a number of mouth sores that will go away on their own including canker sores and cold sores, but if you are suffering mouth sores that are not going away, you need to see your dentist.

Bleeding Gums

Your gums could be bleeding because you are flossing too hard or because you are suffering gum disease, your dentist can help you find out why. If you have just flossed and your gums are bleeding, you are probably safe, but visit your dentist just to be sure.

So if you are suffering any of the symptoms above, play it safe and call your dentist.
