Cavities are one of the most common dental problems among children, teens, and adults. These are permanent decayed parts on the hard surfaces of teeth that progress into tiny holes or openings, also called dental caries or tooth decay, and caused by bacteria and poor dental hygiene. Some contributing factors include frequent snacking or drinking sugary drinks like soda.
We strive to care for your teeth before cavities get larger and cause more problems. If left untreated, they can lead to severe toothaches, an abscessed tooth, root canal infection, and tooth loss. Our team will encourage you to regularly visit our office for dental checkups and cleanings to avoid problems or restore the health of your teeth.
You may not experience cavity symptoms if they are at an early stage. However, as the decay grows larger, you may notice:
- Tooth sensitivity
- Visible holes in your teeth
- Brown or black stains on your tooth’s surface
- Pain when chewing
If you do experience any cavity symptoms, call us at (416) 966-3368 as soon as possible to schedule a dental checkup.
