A cavity is a permanently damaged area in the hard surface of your teeth which develops tiny openings or holes. These begin to grow as the acid produced by plaque build-up begins to damage the layers of the tooth. At Midtown Dental, we work closely with you to identify and treat cavities before they require more costly interventions, such as root canals or extraction. Depending on the nature, location and severity of damage, your dentist may recommend a dental amalgam, a composite filling, or a crown—keep reading for an overview of how they each work, plus some tips for how to avoid needing them!
