Wildflower Dental patients use the word “cavity” often when discussing oral health practices. Along with teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures, cavities are a hot topic. At Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ, we think it’s great that people are so conscious of their dental health.
Cavities can also be called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged in the hard surface (enamel), tiny openings occur. These little holes are cavities. Different factors that contribute to tooth decay are:
- Frequent eating
- Consuming sugary beverages
- Oral bacteria
- Insufficient tooth brushing and flossing
Cavities may get so bad that you will see pits or holes in your teeth, but symptoms may be more subtle, such as sensitivity, pain when biting, or a toothache. If you experience any of these symptoms, call us for an appointment.
