Dental Caries

Alternate Names : Cavities, Tooth Decay, Dental Decay

Dental Caries | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the disease diagnosed?

A dentist or hygienist can identify tooth decay early in order to try to keep the treatment as simple as possible. Examining the teeth with a mirror and a dental probe is a simple way to find most cavities. Dental x-rays will help find cavities when the cavities are still very small or are hidden from sight.
