What is a Cavity?
A cavity is an infection in your tooth where bacteria gets inside and starts rotting and eating it away. Cavities can actually spread toxins into your body that can cause systemic issues if you do not treat the decay and infection. At Cunning Dental Group, your health is really important to us so helping you care for and treat your cavities is a priority.
How do you get cavities?
Cavities are caused by tooth decay which is a process that occurs over time. Here are the steps outlining how cavities are formed:
The #1 chronic childhood illness is dental cavities (tooth decay)!
Tooth decay can occur at any age, but it’s frequent among younger people. It begins when food debris, bacteria or acids in the mouth, and saliva form plaque. If the plaque is not removed, it can accelerate the development of tooth decay. The acids in the plaque weaken and dissolve the enamel of the tooth, creating holes in the teeth or cavities. Although cavities may not initially cause much discomfort, they may become quite painful once the cavity gets close to the nerve or center of the tooth. Tooth decay will destroy your tooth’s enamel, so Cunning Dental Group recommends you schedule an exam to treat any decay right away. By doing so, you can avoid a lot of pain and unnecessary dental treatment expenses.
