Dental Care & Oral Hygiene : How to Know If You Have a Cavity Before a Dentist Appointment


Do you think that you have a cavity? Well
my name’s Michelle and I’m a dental assistant with Solutionz and I’m going to help you determine
on to know if you have a cavity before your dental appointment. A couple different ways
to recognize a cavity is if you start to get sensitive teeth. If your teeth are sensitive
to hot and cold temperatures, sometimes in return you’ll get like a zinging effect is
what we call it, which is a shooting pain that radiates down into your nerve and throughout
your jaw. Also too, you’ll get what we call is like a basically a toothache it will actually
start to throb. That means that the cavity itself has eaten through your enamel and is
now down into the dentin of your tooth which is the core part of your tooth which in return
will cause the nerve of the tooth to start throbbing like almost like you feel like your
heart is beating in your tooth. So these are two different forms to determine on how to
know if you have a cavity. If you do recognize these throughout your mouth, then you definitely
want to go visit your general dentist so he can determine if it is definitely a cavity
or if its just a sensitive tooth. Once again my name’s Michelle, I’m a dental assistant
with Solutionz and I just explained to you on how to determine if you have a cavity.

  • Cavities occur as a result of tooth decay. If you feel pain near the root of your tooth, chances are you may have some form of tooth decay and should consult with your dentist. Dental cavities are fixed by removing the decaying part of the tooth and adding a filling.

  • Hey so I have braces and this one tooth which is on the bottom tingles when I brush it .. So I'm wondering why it's doing That cause i don't get toothaches or it doesn't hurt when I eat it just tingles a little bit when I brush over that tooth

  • I don't have any throbbing or pain in any of my teeth, but it looks like one of my front teeth has a small cavity. I'm not completely sure what it is. It just looks like there's a crumb stuck on my tooth, and I can't brush it off. I have braces, so it could possibly be just another part of one of the brackets.
