Cavities

Ever since you were a kid, your parents and your dentist have probably told you that you need to brush and floss your teeth regularly to avoid cavities. However, what they likely didn’t tell you is exactly how cavities form. When one of your teeth decays, a weak spot starts to develop inside your tooth. If this decay continues and breaks through the surface of the enamel, damage to the tooth can be permanent. At this point, you will need to see a dentist to have the damage repaired.

Cavities are one of the many dental problems we treat at Horizon Dental. When you come into our office for an appointment, we will thoroughly examine your teeth, check for signs of decay, and determine whether you have any cavities. If you do have cavities, we can fill them at our office and ensure the overall health of your teeth.

To prevent cavities, we cannot stress enough how important it is to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss your teeth every day. In addition to this, you should come in for an appointment at one of our offices every six months and try to eat a healthy diet to best maintain your oral health.

If you have any questions about cavities, how they form, or the cavity filling process, please contact us at Northern Horizon Dental today. Remember, we are dedicated to your dental health and look forward to meeting all of your dental needs.
