Understanding Dental Decay

Dental decay occurs when the protective layer of your teeth, the enamel, gets eroded by acids produced by bacteria in your mouth. This process leads to the formation of cavities, which can progress deeper into the tooth if left untreated. Dental decay isn't just about aesthetics; it can result in tooth sensitivity, pain, and even infection if it reaches the pulp of the tooth.

Unveiling the Risks

Beyond the discomfort, dental decay can have far-reaching consequences. Left unchecked, cavities can compromise the structural integrity of your teeth, leading to fractures or breakage. The infection caused by severe decay can extend to the surrounding tissues, causing painful abscesses. Moreover, untreated dental issues can contribute to systemic health problems, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

The Importance of Early Intervention

The good news is that dental decay is preventable and treatable, especially when caught in its early stages. Regular dental checkups at Brite Family Dental can help identify decay before it becomes a bigger issue. Our skilled professionals use advanced diagnostic tools to detect even the smallest signs of decay, ensuring timely intervention to prevent further damage.
