Dental cavity/ Dental decay is a structural deformation caused on the tooth surface due to multifactorial agents like oral bacteria, food debris, snacking on sugary stuff and drinks and failure to clean the tooth surface properly. Due to improper brushing, food remains stuck on the surface and grooves of the tooth. Oral bacteria in the saliva combines with the food (sugary and starch) remnants resulting in the acid formation. This acid creates holes on the tooth surface which is simply called the cavity.
Dental cavities may cause mild to moderate sensitivity and pain. If the cavity is too deep near the nerve of the tooth, can lead to severe pain as well. In such cases, one must prevent the further progression of the decay on the tooth surface by excavating the decay and filling the tooth surface with appropriate filling materials advised by our expert dentist in Versatile Dental Clinic, Al Barsha. After a thorough oral examination and with the help of other aiding tools such as x-rays and caries detection dyes, the dentist will be able to correctly locate the extent of the cavity. Along with presenting symptoms and factors, dental experts at Versatile dental clinic will be able to give you several treatment options based on which the patient can chose the right treatment.

Yes, there are instances where the decay can occur under a damaged restoration or filling. They are called secondary decay. Fillings are vulnerable to damage if not taken proper care. Over the time, dental restorations can get worn out due to the biting forces. When this crack or damage of the filling happens, saliva, bacteria and food debris can seep in the margins between the tooth and the restoration, and a new secondary decay encroaches to begin. In this case, the dentist will have to remove the old filling, remove the decay and place a new filling restoring the normal structure of the tooth.
