Cavities

What are cavities?

Do you remember back in the 70’s and 80’ when we used to watch Saturday morning cartoons and the Crest Team would fight the Cavity Creeps? Maybe you’re too young for that; those sure were the days!

Cavities are also known as tooth decay or you may have heard one of us in the office call them caries.  No matter what you call them, they are the result of bacteria getting into the tooth where it shouldn’t be.  Thankfully we can see cavities with x-rays and lasers when they are tiny microscopic spots.  Sometimes we can see them with the naked eye.  Cavities are not always black.  A lot of the time the cavity someone has may really be an old filling that is made out of a mixture of metal called amalgam.  Those are the black fillings we used to get back when the Cavity Creeps were lurking around.  These days, and really since about 1999, we use a tooth colored material called composite or resin to fix cavities.
