The desire to prevent decay is one of the main reasons men and women visit their dentists
Today we are going to consider 5 things you need to know about cavities.
1. Cavities are also called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged on the hard surface, tiny openings arise. These little holes are cavities.
2. Factors that contribute to decay are:
Consuming sugary beverages
Poor dental hygiene
3. 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 observe any of these symptoms, you should call your dentist today to set up an appointment.
4. Cavities are more common among young children, but that doesn’t mean adults don’t have to take precautions.
