Dental Clinic Robbinsdale MN | What Are Cavities and What Causes Them

A cavity is a form of tooth decay. They are holes that are permanent damages to the hard surfaces of your teeth. Cavities are very common, especially in children, teenagers, and older adults. If cavities are not treated, the damages can become more serious in the deeper layers of your teeth. Cavities can develop due to a combination of factors. When they first develop, there aren’t usually any signs. Symptoms appear when tooth decay gets larger such as tooth sensitivity, toothache or pain, or visible holes in your teeth. Visiting your dentist regularly can prevent cavities and detect them earlier. Visit your dental clinic Robbinsdale MN for a treatment plan if you have cavities.

Dental Clinic Robbinsdale MN | How Do You Get Cavities

As with other tooth decay, the most important and main cause of cavities is not taking care of your teeth. Good oral hygiene prevents gum disease and bad oral health. Cavities and tooth decay develop when plaque forms from sugar and starches that you eat. If you don’t clean your teeth well, the clear, sticky film coats your teeth where bacteria begin feeding. The first stage of cavities forming is when the plaque attacks the hard surface of your teeth and creates erosion in the enamel. This makes it easier for bacteria and acid to reach deeper and softer layers of your teeth. If you don’t treat and prevent cavities and tooth decay, it will affect your nerves and blood vessels, causing toothache and pain. In serious cases, it can reach the bones that hold your teeth. By this time, it is difficult to reverse the effects. Your dental clinic Robbinsdale MN may need to perform surgery and prevent bacteria from destroying the rest of your teeth.

  • Eating and drinking sugary food and drinks
