Options For Fixing Decayed TeethYou probably know that a dental cavity is a hole in a tooth. But did you know that a cavity is the result of the tooth decay process that occurs over time?
Our mouths are full of bacteria that causes decay. This bacteria is fed by the foods we eat and especially those with high amounts of sugar in them. When our teeth are not properly cared for, the decay sets in and can lead to several other dental problems including gum disease and even tooth loss. If you think that you have decay, then you need a thorough exam with x-rays in order for us to diagnose and treat the decay properly. Left untreated, the decay can spread to the nerves of the teeth. When infection sets in around the bone, an abscess forms and this can be very painful.
