Cavities and Fillings

A cavity is a decay of a tooth. It is a plaque, sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth causing tooth decay.

Brush and floss every day to remove plaque. Bacteria in plaque react with sugar in food to produce acids that attack and weaken tooth enamel—the hard, protective covering on our teeth. Eroding enamel leaves teeth unprotected, allowing cavities to develop more easily.

Schedule a cleaning and examination at Dr. Andrea Diamond’s office every six months to identify potential problems and be proactive about your oral health.
