At Purchase Street Family Dental in Rye, New York we treat all levels of severity when it comes to patients teeth, including the minor things like cavities. Cavities are holes in the two outer layers of the teeth called the enamel and the dentin. Both layers serve as a protection for the pulp, the inside of the tooth where are of the nerves and blood vessels are. Cavities are sensitive to temperature and will react to sour, sweet, and acidic foods. There are certain stages to a cavity, one being more sever than the next. A simple surface cavity will need a filling, a deeper cavity will need a crown, a cavity that causes an infection will need a root canal, if untreated the tooth will need to be removed. Call us today so we can fill your cavities before they get worse.
