A cavity is generally tooth decay and is created by bacteria in your mouth. When the bacteria encounter a food source such as sugar, an acid is produced which begins to breakdown the tooth. At first, cavities will not cause pain but it is important to have the decay removed and the tooth filled before it gets too deep where you can either start feeling pain and need a root canal or even worse lose your tooth. At My tooth docs, we use the latest technologies to detect these cavities early on to help you maintain a healthy beautiful smile. No need to worry about the color of the filling material either, we always use Resin-based materials that closely match your teeth, no metal fillings!
