What You Need to Know about Cavities

Cavities are holes in teeth which form when tooth enamel is damaged. It’s important to treat cavities early – as a dentist will fill the cavity to avoid further damage to the tooth. 

Key takeaways:

– Prevent cavities from forming by following a healthy diet.

– Avoid smoking and reduce sugar intake.

– Schedule regular dental check-ups and cleanings, to identify cavities early and avoid complications.

By brushing and flossing regularly with fluoride toothpaste, you can help prevent cavities. 

“Some treatment will need to be done or lifestyle changes made to help the cavity go away and your smile to be healthy again.”
