Dental Cavities - What Is A Cavity?

Dental Cavities and Treatment for Tooth Cavity in Bolton

Cavities also called Dental Caries or tooth decay, can potentially cause lots of dental problems unless treated early. Over time a small cavity can become a much larger problem causing sensitivity and pain. Most cavities increase in size over a period of time and may even lead to the complete tooth loss. Cavity must be fixed in a timely manner, before it is too late. Once the damage is done, fixing and restoring through artificial means can be very intrusive and expensive. Root canals, crowns and implants are some of the treatments that are commonly done to restore the lost smile.

Cavities are commonly found on teeth that are hard to keep clean such as: in between the teeth and on the back of the mouth. Plaque and bacteria can build on these areas. The bacteria produce acids that damages the hard tooth enamel and seeps inside to the dentin, causing damage to the dentin. Brushing and flossing in the morning and at night before going to the bed helps prevent plaque and cavities from developing.

Treatment of dental cares starts with diagnosis by an intra oral exam, & x-rays to determine the location & extent of the decay. In most cases the decay is removed and filled with a white bonded filling which matched your natural tooth color.  If the decay is extensive a crown may be required to restore the tooth to healthy formation.
