Brush Up On Cavities: Toothaches in Mechanicsville MD

Brush Up On Your Cavity Basics Mechanicsville

Everyone gets a toothache now and then. At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD, we deal with toothaches each and every day.

The most common cause of a toothache is a cavity. Cavities can also be called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged in the hard surface, tiny openings occur. These little holes are cavities.

There are other symptoms of cavities besides a toothache, including:

  • Sensitivity to sweets
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Pain when chewing

If you experience any of these symptoms, call us to schedule an appointment. We’ll check your teeth thoroughly, and if we find any cavities, we’ll fill them. We offer white fillings that matches the color of teeth, so they won’t be very noticeable.

Don’t ignore that toothache; it won’t get better on its own. At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville MD, we provide a full range of general and family dentistry. We also provide cosmetic dentistry services like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
