During the dental exam, in addition to looking for signs and symptoms of cavities such as brown or black spots, your dentist also checks the condition of your fillings. They may suggest replacing any that are loose or broken. He may also decide to take an X-ray to take a closer look at problem areas.

Tooth decay is caused by a multitude of factors. Among these, we find diet, insufficient hygiene, the quantity or quality of the patient’s saliva, genetics, as well as certain hormonal changes in the patient.

The dentist must diagnose and repair a cavity, but he must also analyze the source of these cavities in his patient. The Chez Soie Dentisterie team takes the time to listen to the patient’s story and supports them in healing and preventing carious lesions.

If you have a cavity, your dentist may decide to either monitor its progress if the cavity is shallow or at an early stage, or restore the tooth right away. If we do not restore a deeper cavity, or at a more advanced stage, it can deepen further and cause intense pain. There is even a risk of having to have the tooth extracted and having to replace it with a false tooth (or artificial tooth). Hyperlink to dental extractions

Early diagnosis of dental caries will therefore avoid traumatizing the teeth with extensive restorative dentistry techniques. It is also much more cost-effective to repair a smaller cavity than to wait until it takes up the majority of the tooth surface.
