Your teeth can decay due to many reasons. A lack of proper brushing and flossing habits, missing your biyearly dental checkups, eating and drinking high-sugar foods and beverages, reduced saliva production, lack of exposure to fluoride, having diabetes or being a smoker can all increase your risk of having a cavity.

The Signs of Cavities

The decay happens when bacteria in your mouth build up. These bacteria create acids that attack your tooth’s surface, leading to the creation of a hole or cavity. Each tooth has three layers; the outer layer is enamel; the middle is dentin, and the innermost is called the pulp. The deeper the decay goes into the tooth, the more severe the damage is, making it essential that you contact us immediately if you experience any of the following signs of a cavity:

  • Sensitivity to food or drink
  • Pain during chewing
  • Visible discolouration
  • Food caught inside of the tooth when chewing
  • Rough spots on a tooth that can be felt with the tongue

If left untreated, tooth decay can lead to infection, pain and the loss of teeth. Everyone, no matter what their age, is at risk for a cavity—from the time when a tooth develops right through to the senior years.

Oral Care Tips and Colour-Matched Solutions

Young children are particularly at risk of experiencing cavities early in life. It’s vital that they start to learn healthy oral habits that they can easily implement into their lives. At their dental checkups, our team will review what they can do to keep their teeth shining, bright and free from problems. Older adults, however, are also susceptible to cavities because of receding gums being more common, which allows the tooth root to be exposed to the bacteria that cause decay.

When a cavity happens, we provide tooth-coloured fillings that won’t stand out from your smile. They’ll blend in perfectly so that nobody knows that you have fillings.
