What are the symptoms of cavity? | Dabur Dental Care

Everyone is terrified of cavity in teeth. While most small cavities are not painful and go unnoticed, the larger ones trap food particles, which lead to massive toothache. Cavity in teeth also makes the tooth sensitive to cold, hot, sour and sweet foods.

Here are some signs/symptoms to watch out for if you are suspecting cavity in teeth


  • Ache

    If you experience a self-triggered tingling feeling it’s time to sit up and take notice. This means that the nerves have been infected by bacteria or an irritant. The nerve is also possibly in the process of dying. This condition indicates a serious cavity problem known as irreversible pulpitis. The second kind of toothache occurs when the tooth is disturbed, during chewing etc. It is a stabbing pain that is capable of depriving you of any sleep and concentration.
  • Hole in the Tooth

    Always examine your teeth carefully when you brush. If you notice that your tooth has suddenly developed a hole, it is because your enamel has been eroded. This is a sure sign of cavity! You can have a tooth x-ray to determine the real cause. A quick trip to your dentist is advised!
  • Sensitivity

    Sensitivity in the teeth is the most common sign of cavity formation. Sensitivity starts when the top cover of the enamel decays, affecting the layer beneath. Cavity-struck teeth are mostly unable to tolerate foods that are too cold, too hot, too sour or too sweet. If your teeth suddenly develop sensitivity, you can either have a cavity, reversible pulpitis (early signs of decay), or you could be suffering from gum recession. A quick trip to the dentist is a must! Watch out for the above signs to find out whether or not you have tooth cavity. A regular visit to the dentist too can warn you well in advance and save you from the trauma of tooth decay at a later stage.
  • Bad Breath

    Are you brushing your teeth at least twice a day with the best toothpaste in the world - Dabur Red Paste, and at least rinsing after every meal? Then chances are you should not have bad breath. If you still do, then you may be developing tooth cavities.
Tooth decay makes room for bacteria proliferation, which eventually causes bad breath. Show yourself to the dentist at once to avoid any such dental problem.
