Signs You May Have a Cavity
Posted on 6/23/2018 by Office
Do you have a cavity in any of your teeth right now? Would you know if you did? Some people are great about coming in to get their teeth checked out like clockwork. Others have such busy schedules that making time for a cleaning and exam is more difficult. Those who see us consistently likely do not have any cavities that would be problematic or that we have not addressed. However, those that haven't seen us in the last six months may have a problem. Here are a few symptoms to help you know if you could have one lurking. Symptoms That Come with CavitiesTypically, the first sign that you have a cavity is a toothache. This could be dull and barely there, or you could get woken up from a solid sleep with acute tooth pain. It all depends on the size of the cavity and its location. You can manage the pain with over the counter pain relievers, most of the time, until you can get seen, but do not ignore this pain.
