Dental FillingsAn Overview
Stop Tooth Decay and Keep That Healthy Smile!
Tooth decay is a common ailment that most adults will experience in their lifetime. Dental cavities can happen to anyone. Factors such as genetics, plaque buildup, the foods we eat, and improper dental hygiene can all contribute to cavities.
Although cavities are commonplace, it’s best to catch them as soon as possible and treat them with a dental cavity filling to prevent them from turning into a bigger issue.
Symptoms of a Dental Cavity
Usually, dental cavity symptoms are not present until the cavity has become more advanced. Catching dental cavities early can assist your dentist in reversing the decay. The most common cavity symptoms are:
- Tooth sensitivity
- Tooth pain
- Pain in teeth when eating or drinking
- A visible opening in the tooth
- Discoloration of a tooth
