Your teeth need a lot of tender, loving care. But sometimes, in spite of regular brushing and flossing, we end up with a new cavity – the common cold of dental health. At The Norterra Dentist in Phoenix AZ, we have been filling cavities for years and would be happy to take care of any cavities or other dental issues you are experiencing.
Cavities refer to tooth decay, and it’s a sad fact that few of us go through life without getting at least one. For some children, a cavity is the first health problem they experience.
Cavities are caused when bacteria, acid, food debris, and saliva combine to form plaque. Plaque then clings to your teeth and the acid in the plaque starts to dissolve the enamel. The result is a hole in your tooth.
Typical cavity symptoms include:
- Pain when chewing
- Sensitivity to sweet, hot, or cold food and drinks
If you notice any of these symptoms, please give us a call.
At The Norterra Dentist in Phoenix AZ, we offer white fillings that match your teeth. We’re a mercury-free practice with a full range of general dentistry services. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!
