Tooth Pain

One of the more obvious signs of cavities is tooth pain. This is because cavities are essentially damaged areas of the tooth where decay has settled in, often leaving holes or empty spots. As you can imagine, when your child eats, this empty spot can get food in and reach more sensitive areas of the tooth.

Sensitive to Foods

Sensitivity to certain foods is often because the enamel of the child’s tooth has worn down. This can leave other areas of the tooth, such as the dentin exposed, that then affects the tooth’s nerve. This is what causes tooth pain while eating certain foods, such as hot or cold foods or even sweet foods.

Spots on Your Child’s Tooth

Cavities are dark, often black, in appearance, so if you see dark spots in the middle or the sides of your child’s tooth, it may be a cavity. Furthermore, white spots can also appear. These are a sign of mineral loss in the tooth and should be evaluated by your pediatric dentist in Denver.

Hole in Tooth

Another classic sign of cavities in kids is a hole in their tooth. Oftentimes, holes begin as white spots on the tooth and then they eventually worsen, forming a pit or a hole. These holes can also form on the sides of teeth, too.
