Cavities are holes in the enamel of your teeth that form when acid eats away at the outer level of your teeth. The best treatment for cavities are dental fillings.
If left untreated, the cavities can grow and begin to affect the inner tissues of your teeth. As a result, cavities can cause nerve pain, toothaches, hot or cold sensitivity, enamel stains, and pain while eating.
In order to repair a cavity, a dentist has to remove the decaying enamel and then fill the hole with special material. There are several types of fillings available. At AC Dentistry, we offer both amalgam and composite fillings.
There are several things that cause cavities, including drinking soda and other sugary drinks, eating processed sugary foods, and not taking care of your teeth.
