How Do Cavities Damage My Teeth?


Posted on 9/5/2022 by Watermark Dentistry
How Do Cavities Damage My Teeth?Cavities are holes that develop as a result of tooth deterioration. This can be observed with the naked eye or with the help of an expert dentist's x-ray. Although there are several causes of tooth decay, food is by far the most prevalent. If you enjoy consuming sweets and other sugary foods, you are likely to develop cavities. Additionally, individuals who don't maintain proper oral hygiene run the danger of getting cavities. This involves flossing once a day and brushing their teeth at least twice on a daily basis.

What Are the Causes and Signs of Cavity In Between Teeth


Plaque between teeth becomes a breeding ground for bacteria that turn it into acid. Cavities are holes in the teeth that result from these acids eroding the tooth enamel. They frequently affect those who do not pay attention to what they eat and who do not properly care for their mouths. The signs include discomfort when chewing, obvious cracks and holes, and sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks.

What Are the Techniques to Control Cavities In Between Teeth


Cavities between teeth can cause harm to both sides of a tooth. It does not necessarily indicate that one tooth will sustain less damage than the other just because it leans more to one side than the other. When both teeth are damaged, they sometimes both need to be extracted. There are safeguards in place. That does offer a solution for dealing with your cavities, though, protecting both sides from harm. They consist of filling, root canal repair, extraction, and recalcification.

Our clinic addresses all cavity-related issues. Call or visit us today to talk to our trained specialists about all your options for treating cavities between teeth before more harm is done to them.
