Symptoms of Cavities and Tooth Decay

The symptoms of cavities vary depending on how extensive the cavities are and where they are located. During the initial stages, there may not be any symptoms. A trained dentist like Dr. Alkass can identify tooth decay early and recommend steps to avoid further damage. As the decay grows, the following signs and symptoms may begin to occur:

-Increased tooth sensitivity
-Persistent toothache
-Visible pits in the tooth’s surface
-Pus around a tooth

All of these symptoms should be discussed immediately with Dr. Alkass.
