What Happens If I Ignore a Cavity?

Worried that you might have a cavity? Wondering what could happen if you don’t see your dentist?

Well…if you don’t get attention for your cavity, it will get progressively worse, meaning that it will grow in size and get more decayed.  There is also a risk that your nerves will get exposed to bacteria, which could lead to infection. Once this happens, you would require a root canal. You would also be leaving your tooth more prone to breakage, whereby leaving you in a situation where you would likely need to get a dental crown.

It goes without saying that the sooner you can get it diagnosed, the better. Therefore, is imperative to keep up with your dental visits every six months because a cavity does not wait. And not only that, it can lead to various other dental problems too, not to mention make a bigger dent in your pocketbook.
