Cavities in Hialeah, FL

Cavities, also known as “tooth decay,” are a prevalent dental issue and the leading cause of tooth loss. Identifying, preventing, and treating cavities is essential for maintaining optimal oral health.


Causes of Cavities:

  • Inadequate dental hygiene
  • High sugar and starch consumption
  • Smoking
  • Insufficient fluoride
  • Chronic diseases or medications reducing saliva production
  • Drug use

Symptoms of Cavities:

Early-stage cavities may have subtle symptoms like slight sensitivity to cold and mild tooth discoloration. As cavities progress, dark spots appear on the tooth surface, accompanied by increased sensitivity, bad breath, and a foul taste. Untreated cavities can lead to infections and abscesses.


Cavity Treatment:

Treatment options depend on the cavity’s severity:

  • Fillings: Used for small cavities, involving removal of decayed portions and filling with materials like porcelain or composite resin.
  • Crowns: Treat larger cavities by reshaping the tooth and fitting a crown to protect it.
  • Root Canals: Necessary if the cavity reaches the tooth’s pulp, involving pulp and nerve removal followed by sealing and crown placement.

Cavity Prevention:

  • Brush teeth twice daily and floss regularly.
  • Limit sugar and starch intake.
  • Visit the dentist biannually for check-ups.
  • Schedule professional cleanings annually or biannually based on lifestyle habits.
