Cavities are the dreaded, little holes in your teeth from tooth decay. When you drink or eat foods containing sugar and high-carbohydrates,  plaque,a sticky form of bacteria that constantly forms on our teeth, forms in your mouth. The acids in plaque attack your tooth enamel, creating holes..called cavities!

Your dentist will find cavities during a regular dental exam. If you’ve had a cavity for a while, it may cause a toothache.

How are cavities treated? Your dentist will evaluate how bad the cavity is and plan treatment accordingly.
