Cavities & Tooth Decay

Cavities & Tooth Decay

Cavities are permanently damaged areas in or around the surface of your teeth that result in tiny holes. Cavities are one of the most common dental problems, and can happen even to infants.

Cavities are caused by plaque from food high in sugar or starch content settling on the surface of the teeth. Drinking soft drinks, eating sugary foods and smoking are the main causes of cavities among adults. For children, sugary snacks and poor oral hygiene habits are the most likely culprits.

Symptoms of a cavity include toothache, sensitivity, sudden pain when eating or drinking something cold or sweet, visible holes on the surface of the teeth, stains on teeth, or pain when biting. A low-sugar diet, regular brushing and rinsing, and regular visits to your dentist can all help reduce the risk of cavities.

To make an appointment to visit us in our modern practice in Mount Hawthorn, call us on (08)-9443-8333 or book online.
