The importance of getting prompt treatment for Dental Cavities

Cavities (or ‘caries’) are, in essence, decay on your teeth. Left unchecked, they can destroy the structure of your tooth, even down to the root. Fortunately, cavities can be easily treated to save your natural teeth — they just need to be treated sooner rather than later. At Dentistry On 10 in Mississauga, Ontario, we check for cavities and tooth decay during your annual dental exam.

Why you should get cavity treatment as early as possible

Cavities can develop at any time, especially if you don’t practice proper oral hygiene. Some people are more susceptible to cavities due to genetics or the structure of their teeth. By practicing good oral hygiene, you reduce your risk of tooth decay to maintain healthy teeth.

Small cavities often don’t show symptoms. However, as they grow, you may feel pain or sensitivity in your tooth. By the time a cavity reaches the root of your tooth and touches a nerve, you’ll definitely know it’s there! At this point, it will have caused extensive damage to your tooth.

Through routine dental exams, Dr. Rina Kotecha can monitor your oral health and detect cavities in their early stages when they’re easier to treat. Prompt treatment can prevent decay from destroying a tooth or spreading to other teeth. It will also spare you from painful symptoms such as unbearable, excruciating toothaches. Furthermore, untreated cavities can increase the risk of bacteria spreading to your gums, causing gum disease. You could even lose natural teeth due to severe decay.
