Cavities and Your Teeth

You know that cavities are bad news, but did you know that it can be difficult to detect a cavity while it’s forming? And while you could know that having a cavity is a problem, did you know that not treating a cavity could lead to a wide array of problems.

For instance, did you know that a single cavity could make root canal therapy necessary if the issue isn’t addressed? You see, cavities are essentially decayed areas of a tooth. If this decay reaches the center of your tooth, and make root canal therapy necessary.

Still, as usual, it’s better to prevent a problem than it is to treat one. Also, as you may know, preventing a cavity is not an overly difficult task. The most important thing you can do is brush your teeth for two minutes at a time twice a day. Similarly, you should brush every day. However, doing these things may not always prevent cavities. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can identify a cavity before it becomes a serious problem. You see, cavities generally from near the back of your teeth where they can be difficult to spot. Still, if you experience sudden sensitivity, pain, or visible brown or black spots, a cavity could be forming.
