When to see a dentist

Home remedies may reduce the risk of cavities or reverse damage to enamel in the pre-cavity stage.

These remedies should be used alongside dentist-recommended techniques, such as brushing, preferably with fluoride toothpaste.

Not all cavities cause pain, so it is essential to see a dentist regularly.

Dentists can detect cavities at an early stage and recommend preventive action. They may also provide a filling, crown, or other treatment for advanced cases of decay.
