How do cavities form?

You may not know that there are several stages to cavity formation.

Key takeaways:

– The first sign of a cavity is a white spot indicating enamel damage.

– Decay then progresses to the dentin layer; a simple filling can prevent any further damage at this stage.

– Once the pulp becomes infected it can spread to bones, ligaments and nerves and potentially develop into a painful abscess; treatment options include a root canal filling or teeth may need to be extracted.

“Always get regular checkups with your dentist to catch cavities while they’re still small!”
