Dental Cavities

Fort McMurray Family Dentists

Dental Cavities are also named tooth decay and caries. Dental cavities are permanently damaged spots in your teeth’s hard surface creating an opening or hole. Unhealthy eating, continuous snacking and not cleaning your teeth well will result in cavities. Tooth decay is among the world’s most common health problems and can lead to severe aching in your teeth, infections and teeth loss if left untreated.

We want to help you avoid these problems through these preventative measures.

Prevention Tips

For Dental Cavities

● Visit us regularly
● Consider getting dental sealants
● Drink tap water as it contains fluoride
● Rinse your mouth
● Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste after drinking or eating
● Combine treatments like prescription fluoride and an antibacterial rinse with xylitol-based chewing gum

Signs & Symptons
Of A Dental Cavity

Fort McMurray Family Dental

(780) 790-0088
● Mild to sharp pain while drinking something sweet, hot or cold or eating
● Toothache, random pain or a pain occurring without apparent cause
● Pain when you bite down
● Sensitivity in your teeth
● Brown, black or white staining on the surface of your teeth
● Visible pits or holes in your teeth
Cavities sneak their way into your mouth without you realizing it. It is important for you to avoid certain factors that put your teeth at higher risk for cavities.

Factors Increasing The Risk of Cavities

● Lots of snacking and sipping causing your teeth to wear down
● Food that clings to your teeth for a long period of time like honey and hard candy
● Teeth that are harder to keep clean like back teeth (molars and premolars)
Young children and teenagers or older adults

● Feeding your infants during bedtime or when toddlers wander around drinking from a sippy cup or from bottles with liquids containing sugar
● Dry mouth
● Heartburn causes dentin attack
● Fillings and dental devices, easier for plaque build-up in certain zones that are hard to get to
● Eating disorders causing acid in your stomach to interfere with your production of saliva
● Not enough fluoride being used
*Note that plaque builds on your teeth within 20 minutes of eating so make sure you brush that away

Tooth Decay Treatments

● Fillings
● Crowns
● Root Canals
