5 Cavity Basics

Indianapolis Cosmetic Dentist

The desire to prohibit decay is one of the main reasons individuals visit their dentists

Today we are going to consider 5 things you need to know about cavities.

1. Cavities are also called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged on the hard surface, tiny openings ensue. These little holes are cavities.

2. Factors that contribute to tooth decay are:

Frequent eating
Consuming sugary beverages
Oral bacteria
Poor dental hygiene

3. Cavities may get so bad that you will see pits or holes in your teeth, but symptoms may be more subtle, such as sensitivity, pain when biting, or a toothache. If you observe any of these symptoms, you should call your dentist today to set up an appointment.

4. Cavities are more common among pre-teens, but that doesn’t mean adults don’t have to take precautions.

5. Avoiding cavities is uncomplicated. Be sure to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, eat right, skip frequent snacking, and have regular visits with your dentist.

    Pat S.

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    —Jeanie M.

    Leslee D.

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

    —Judy S.
