Cavity is a word that no one wants to hear at the dentist’s. A cavity develops when a tooth decays, or breaks down. A cavity is a hole that grows deeper and bigger over time, and it is important to get it repaired before a cavity reaches all the way inside a tooth where the nerve endings are! Ouch!
Although there are ways to fill up cavities, prevention is always better than cure! Take care of your teeth before you have to suffer a toothache!
