Fillings in Cavities
Need to Take Care of Cavities? Our Yuma AZ Dentists Can Take Care of Your Cavity, While Preventing Futures Ones
One of the first questions you probably ask at your dental appointment is "do I have a cavity?"
Cavities are the most common dental problem. While cavities are more common in children, which may be because they have not yet developed the best oral hygiene practices, anyone with teeth can develop cavities, including infants. Some people are more susceptible to cavities, such as pregnant women with decreased calcium levels.
A cavity can really hurt. The pain is caused when the cavity, which is a hole in your tooth caused by tooth decay, reaches your tooth's nerve endings.

- Pain in the tooth
- Pain around the tooth
- Tooth sensitivity
- Pain when you bite down
- Visible holes in the tooth
- Pain when you eat something cold, hot or sweet
