How to Tell if You Have a Cavity
Your dentist at Night & Day Dental can easily tell you if you have a cavity when you visit for your regular checkup in Raleigh. Identifying one on your own, however, can be a little bit trickier. You can attempt to assess you own dental health, and if you are doing so, there are a few key symptoms to take note of when inspecting for a cavity. If you are experiencing any of the following discomforts, it might be time to see a dentists for cavity treatment:
- Chewing is painful, and the pain is focused on a single tooth
- Your teeth are sensitive to hot or cold foods and beverages
- You can see visible dark spots, chips or cracks
- You see chalky or white areas on the tooth that result from mineral loss
These are all signs that you may be suffering from a cavity. The quicker you receive treatment, the easier it will be to resolve, so you should see your dentist as soon as possible upon noticing any of these signs. To prevent cavities, brush and floss your teeth regularly and avoid foods that are overly sweet.
