the doctor and our team at Brookside Dental Care frequently field questions about cavities and what causes them. Patients will typically ask, “I brush twice a day and floss regularly, as well as rinse with hydrogen peroxide, so a cavity is unlikely, right?”
When cavities, also known as caries, are in their initial stages, people often will feel no symptoms, and they won’t experience any pain or discomfort. It’s not until the tooth decay has reached a certain level that patients begin to notice the signs. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may want to consider scheduling an appointment with the doctor as soon as possible:
Cavities can happen at any time, to anyone, no matter how old you are. Routine dental care is important to prevent cavities or the onset of tooth decay, so it is important to visit the doctor and our team at Brookside Dental Care for regular cleanings. If you are overdue for a checkup or think you may have a cavity, please give us a call at STOCKTON, California office to schedule an appointment.
