Caries, also known as cavities or tooth decay, is the most common chronic childhood illness. It generally affects children and youth, but adults are not immune to it either.
A combination of bacteria, acids, food debris, and saliva inside the mouth forms plaque, which results in tooth decay if not removed through proper dental hygiene.
Your Smile Designer dentists are well-versed in diagnosing and preventing these issues, which is why we have a specific plan designed for caries risk assessment.
Our methods include oral examination, digital radiography, transillumination, as well as a laser cavity detection system known as Diagnodent.
If decay is discovered, we immediately take the necessary steps to solve the problem.
