How can you tell if you have a cavity? The only way to be sure is to visit the dentist! Cavities develop below the surface of the tooth. This means they are not easily visible! When you eat foods that have sugars and starches in them (also known as carbohydrates) they feed the bacteria in your mouth which produces an acid that eats into your teeth! The tooth enamel wears down from this. The most likely spots for cavities to develop are in the pits of the chewing surfaces (back teeth area). They can also easily develop in between teeth or near gumminess too! Be sure to visit your dentist regularly for checkups to help spot cavities and protect against them.
