Looking For and Dealing With Cavities

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 04:48 PM

Cavities are one of the most common issues for teeth, and are something you may have to go to PMDC Dental Center to have treated. When it comes to dealing with cavities, it is important to first identify if you have a cavity, and then take steps to begin treatment while avoiding making things worse.

The first thing to do is look for the symptoms of a cavity. The most obvious symptoms are a toothache, a sensitive tooth, and a sharp pain when eating. However, as these can also be symptoms of problems other than a cavity, you shouldn’t simply assume you have one just based on these symptoms. Others to look for are any visible holes in the tooth that is having issues, as well as staining on the surface of the problem tooth. The staining may be brown, black, or white. Depending on how white your teeth are, you may have to look closely to see any staining if it’s white. It is important to keep in mind that cavities may not have noticeable symptoms when they are just starting, and will only become known once they have gotten worse. That’s why it is important to go to the dentist on a regular basis to help increase the chances of catching a cavity before it gets any worse.

If you determine you have a cavity, there are a few things you need to do. One, obviously, is make an appointment with the dentist. Try to make it as soon as possible, as you don’t want to wait too long for treatment, or you may risk the cavity getting worse. You and your dentist can discuss a number of possible treatments, including a filling, crown, and root canal. You should also try to avoid chewing with the tooth that has the cavity as much as possible, or you risk food getting in there and causing more issues. Also avoid sugary foods and other types of foods that can cause cavities in the first place, as they may further speed up the tooth decay process. It is also important to clean the tooth, even if it hurts, to try and slow down the decay process until you can get proper treatment.
