Cavities Treatment

The signs and symptoms of cavities and tooth rot change depending on their extent and location. When a hole is just starting, you may not have any symptoms by any means. But your dentist might be able to see that rot is starting and recommend steps to keep it from getting worse.

As the rot gets larger, it may result in such signs and symptoms as :

  • Toothache
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Mild to sharpened pain when eating or drinking something sweet, hot or cold
  • Visible holes or pits in your teeth
  • Pain when you bite down
  • Pus around a tooth, particularly when you press on your gums

When to see a dentist

You may not bear in mind that a hole is forming, so visiting your dentist regularly is your best protection against cavities and tooth rot. If you experience toothache or mouth pain common tell-tale signs of cavities see your dentist at the earliest opportunity.

If a hole is treated before it starts causing pain, you probably won’t need in depth treatment. That’s why it’s very important to have regular dentist visits and cleanings even when your mouth feels fine. When you notice symptoms, the damage is getting worse.
