If you are suffering from a toothache or any other oral pain, you may have an active cavity. A cavity is the result of unchecked tooth decay resulting in the breakdown of the tooth’s enamel. This breakdown opens the tooth up to bacterial infections and further damage. Untreated cavities can wreak havoc on your oral health, so if you believe you have a cavity, you should get a cavity filling from a reputable dental provider as soon as possible.
Toothaches or sensitive teeth are often the first signs a cavity is appearing. When you first begin to notice pain or sensitivity, you should reach out to your preferred dentist to schedule an appointment. He or she can provide you with a thorough oral examination and determine what, if any, damage you may have to your enamel. If it is determined that you do have a cavity, he or she will most likely recommend a cavity filling, which can often be completed during the same visit. If you have many cavities that need to be addressed, he or she may recommend splitting the treatment into 2 or more visits to keep your office time to a minimum.
