How do cavities begin?
Even with good dental hygiene, a cavity could form just by areas missed when bushing, loss of enamel from biting a hard candy, lack of fluoride and just plain bad luck.
A cavity can go without detection for a long time before it gives you problems. A dental check-up can help prevent and detect such sneaky cavity bugs. Just remember, you are never too young or too old to avoid these pesky bugs.
What happens when we find that we have a cavity? Your dental team will take x-rays to see how big and deep the cavity has gotten and then make a plan to restore the area to a good working surface.
If you are experiencing a toothache, it’s a sure bet that you have let the tooth go much too long before you call attention to it. Once there’s pain or the tooth is either sensitive to hot or cold due to exposed nerves. You need to call and make the trip to visit us to figure out what’s happening and how to stop the pain. Don’t treat the symptom, treat the cause.
