What on earth is Cavity?

We were told we had cavity but what exactly is it?

It's simply an area in your tooth eaten by bacteria and unfortunately it doesn't get repaired.

You can slow down the process to get it bigger by keeping very good oral hygiene but can't stop the process completely.

When your dentist shows you cavities in your mouth using x-ray or intra-oral pictures, don't panic!

If it were small enough, your doctor would say let's monitor and compare in next visit.

Or if it were big enough to concern, then you may have some work cut out for you!

You can start by one tooth at a time or one quadrant at a time!

Remember! 

You don't have to be afraid of dental work. Laughing gas or sedation are available to make your dental visit comfortable!

Ask our dentist, Dr. Park for your options!
