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.

General Dentistry Testimonial

Hi, before I come to see Doctor Rina and her amazing staff, I was actually someone that had not gone to the dentist for a while because I was so stressed and very worried and anxious about it.
I had been recommended about her from other people and kept in the back of my mind. I finally made the call and from the first call the reception was absolutely amazing and made me feel at home. I let them know right away, I was really anxious. This is when I came in to see the doctor, Doctor Rena was amazing. She went through everything with me. I wouldn’t even smile when I walked in, she noticed I wouldn’t smile. I had had temporary caps on my front teeth for a really, really long time, so she took me through what her options were and it wasn’t good enough that it was just like here’s ABC. She wanted to make sure that we had gone too. A specialist to make sure mines a little bit more, more, issues. Having had root canal treatments on my front teeth and I went ahead, came back and again she sat down with me and gave me all of my options. What’s best for me? What can we do? What can we expect long term? Everyone here is so nice and warm they from the time I walked in for all my appointments they were all. How are you, Paula? How’s everything going? And you just feel like you’re part of a family and made me really feel at ease within a month and a half, She had me smiling like I am now. It was great, my friends, my family, my work people. They all notice exactly just how much more confident I am that I can smile. And honestly, it’s with her and because of the team here. And I found a place I can come back to and now really put my dental health as a priority. So, I definitely recommend her if there’s anything that you’ve left or you just need help on or you’re just looking for a place that you can come and feel comfortable. I definitely say, come to see Doctor Rina.
