Syracuse Tooth Cavity Specialists
Dental cavities or dental caries are tooth decay caused by mouth bacteria that build up on teeth in a sticky biofilm called dental plaque. Absent proper oral hygiene, the bacterial decay will deteriorate the tooth’s enamel thereby forming a tooth cavity with often serious consequences to your dental health and appearance. TLC Dental Group, the home of “Gentle Dentistry,” is a leading Syracuse tooth cavity specialist with years of experience in treating dental cavities; in providing gentle, effective,and affordable tooth cavity relief to our patients; and in enabling them to again enjoy robust dental health and our signature “Dream Smile.”
Risks of Dental Cavities (Dental Caries)
If left untreated, a tooth cavity’s bacterial decay will eventually reach the soft dental pulp and sensitive nerves causing acute pain, tooth loss, and gum disease. It also can spread to other teeth and possibly lead to the dire systemic problems depicted in this graph. Nor is a tooth cavity’s misery necessarily limited to you. Through kissing and shared utensils, its bacteria can even infect others. In other words, your tooth cavity can leave a lasting and hurtful impression on a loved one.
