The Symptoms of Cavities

Posted .

Do you think you might have a cavity? If so, our dentist, Dr. Marianne Morelli, is happy to help you. The first thing you can do is call our office and schedule an appointment. That way we can repair your tooth if you do indeed have a cavity. To help you know if you have fallen victim to tooth decay, our dentist is happy to share some symptoms with you.

The first symptom is a soft spot. Your dentist will find these soft spots by probing your teeth with a special tool during your appointment. The soft spot is weak enamel that has given way to bacteria.

The second symptom is a toothache. The toothache is very consistent and it lasts longer than two days. It is painful to eat and chew. Sometimes the ache can be so severe that you can’t even sleep at night.

The third symptom is tooth sensitivity. You will typically experience this sensitivity when you consume hot or cold foods or drinks.
