What is a Cavity?
No Cavities A cavity is the destruction of one or more layers of the tooth. Enamel, dentin, cementum and the tooth's nerve (also known as the tooth pulp) may be involved. Just like gum disease, the beginning stages of a cavity are generally painless. By the time you start feeling symptoms, the cavity is bigger, sometimes more painful to fix, and certainly more expensive to fix. Let Dr. Meyer detect the cavity before it gets big, because it is easier to fix, less painful to fix, and less expensive to fix.
