Alaska Premier Dental Group patients use the word “cavity” often when discussing oral health practices. Along with teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures, cavities are a hot topic.
At Alaska Premier Dental Group we think it’s great that people in the Wasilla area are so conscious of their teeth, and we feel that having a better understanding of exactly what a cavity is will help them take better care of their pearly whites.
Cavities can also be called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged in a hard surface, tiny openings occur. These little holes are cavities. Different factors that contribute to tooth decay are:
Consuming sugary beverages
Insufficient tooth brushing and flossing
Cavities may get so bad that you will see pits or holes in your teeth, but symptoms may be more subtle, such as sensitivity, pain when biting, or a toothache. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should call your Anchorage, Wasilla, or Eagle River dentist today for an appointment.
If you are in the market for quality dental care in the Anchorage area, give Alaska Premier Dental Group a call. We have been treating dental patients in and around Wasilla since 1997. We can also answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and dental implants.
We hope to hear from you soon!
