Cavities being one of the most common dental issues around, it’s easy to dismiss it as something that’s not too serious. You might hear people say, “it’s just a cavity” like it’s nothing at all. But in reality, it’s just as important as any other dental treatment. Cavities form when bacteria in people’s mouths produce acids that break down your enamel. Activities that increase the risk of cavities include a diet consisting of excessive amounts of sugar, not flossing regularly, certain medications, and brushing too hard. Symptoms include pain or sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet food and drinks. If you don’t treat a cavity right away. You’re going to face more issues down the road. Once decay starts, it doesn’t recede; it only spreads. If you want to set up a dental appointment with California Dental Care, give us a call at (707) 741-6090 or click here.
