How Do I Know if I Have a Cavity? FAQs answered by your Catonsville Dentist

Monday, January 14th, 2013

A cavity occurs as the result of tooth decay, which is the destruction of the tooth structure because of plaque buildup.

When foods containing carbohydrates are left on your teeth for an extended period of time, bacteria living in your mouth begin to digest this food, turning them into acids. Then, the acid mixes with the bacteria, food debris, and saliva to form plaque. It is this plaque that eats away at your tooth enamel, creating cavities.

How Do I Know if I Have a Cavity?

Symptoms of cavities include:

  1. Visible holes in your teeth
  2. Toothache
  3. Sensitivity to hots and colds
