Brush Up On Your Cavity Basics

Brush Up On Your Cavity Basics Phoenix

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.

At Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ, your dental health is our number one priority. We offer general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next cleaning and checkup with us today.
