When it comes to your teeth you are possibly at your most vulnerable if you skip a couple of dental appointments as this allows any decay to go unnoticed. Decay can set in quickly and if you attend regularly it can be easily found by taking a radio-graph.
Oral hygiene plays an important factor in the ongoing battle with our teeth. It helps to combat any bacteria build up on the surface of the teeth and the build up of tartar and plaque, all of which can lead to the breakdown of enamel and allow dental cavities to form.
When biting down on the offending tooth or exposing it to hot and cold temperatures you may experience a shooting pain through your mouth, this is the first symptom of a cavity, you may also find when a tooth is developing a cavity it may become unusually discoloured on the surface.
If you are worried you may have a dental cavity or are experiencing any pain at all it is time to contact your sutton dentist so the problem can be resolved. In most cases you may only be in need of a filling, however the longer you leave the pain the further the cavity is allowed to go possibly resulting in a root canal treatment being your only option in saving the tooth.
