Brush Up On Your Cavity Basics

Brush Up On Your Cavity Basics Scottsdale

The Norterra Dentist patients use the word “cavity” often when discussing oral health practices. Along with teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures, cavities are a hot topic.

At The Norterra Dentist we think it’s great that people in the Scottsdale area are so conscious of their teeth, and we feel that having a better understanding of exactly what a cavity is will help them take better care of their pearly whites.

Cavities can also be called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged in the hard surface, tiny openings occur. These little holes are cavities. Different factors that contribute to tooth decay are:

Frequent eating
Consuming sugary beverages
Oral bacteria
Insufficient tooth brushing and flossing

Cavities may get so bad that you will see pits or holes in your teeth, but symptoms may be more subtle, such as sensitivity, pain when biting, or a toothache. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should call your Norterra, New River, or Peoria dentist today for an appointment.

If you are in the market for quality dental care in the Phoenix area, give The Norterra Dentist a call. We have been treating dental patients in and around Scottsdale since 2013. We can also answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and dental implants.
