After a trip to our offices, the first question that others ask them is if they have any cavities. The hope is that people will come back with a big smile and a no. They want to know that they are taking care of their teeth and our dentists can confirm that for them.
Of course, they may also find out that they do have a cavity. In that case, they may want to ask if they could have known this before their visit. How can they tell they have a cavity? This knowledge can help them get treatment before the cavity gets worse.
A cavity does not disappear on its own. It only gets worse. The longer you go without treating a cavity, the bigger it will get. That is why it is important to detect a cavity as soon as possible. There are a few signs of a potential cavity to watch for.
When you see the signs of a cavity, you have a few choices. You can ignore it and hope it goes away, but it won’t. The better choice is to contact our offices to schedule an appointment. Our dental professionals can use tools and observation to determine the severity of the cavity and develop a plan to treat it.
