Just because your teeth are white doesn’t necessarily mean they’re healthy.
Although your pearly whites may look pretty on the exterior, they may be less healthy than you realize under the surface. Problems like gum disease and periodontal disease can occur even if you have the most perfect looking smile. Sometimes problems can occur with the root due to trauma or disease that will only be found by an x-ray performed by your dentist. Persistent bad breath or gums that bleed when your brush or floss could be a sign of an underlying issue. If you’re teeth look healthy, but don’t feel good see your dentist as soon as possible. Regular dental visits are one of the most important things to help keep your teeth looking and feeling healthy.
