Go to a dentist: Bad breath, bleeding gums, pain, teeth breaking or falling out are all signs of poor dentition. Best to see a dentist if you are concerned about you teeth.

See your dentist!: Your dentist can discover cavities during your regular dental check-up. The tooth surface feels soft when probed by your dentist with a dental instrument. X-rays can also show cavities between teeth before they become visible to the eye.
In advanced stages of tooth decay, you might experience a toothache, especially after consuming sweet, hot, or cold foods or drinks.
