“Brush Up On Your Cavity Basics, NYC”

April 18th, 2014

Residents of Scarsdale Westchester County and White Plains use the word ‘cavity’ often when discussing oral health practices. Along with teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures, cavities are a hot topic.

At The Dental Design Center we think it’s great that people in the NYC area are so conscious of their teeth, and we feel that having a greater understanding of exactly what a cavity is will help them take better care of their pearly whites.

Cavities can also be called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged in the hard surface, tiny openings occur. These little holes are cavities. Different factors that contribute to tooth decay are:

Frequent eating
Consuming sugary beverages
Oral bacteria
Insufficient tooth brushing and flossing

Cavities may get so bad that you will see pits or holes in your teeth, but symptoms may be more subtle, such as sensitivity, pain when biting, or a toothache. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should call your dentist today for an appointment.

If you are in the market for quality dental care in the White Plains area, give The Dental Design Center a call. We have been treating dental patients in NYC since 1996. We can also answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and dental implants.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Dear Ira, Just want to thank you for transforming my injured teeth to far better than before my fall.
