Majority of people don't realize they've got a cavity until the dentist has informed them or they experience a tooth ache. Here are the 3 most ignored signs of a cavity and how you can now catch it early!

1) Appearance of white spots on the tooth affected

   It occurs due to leaching of minerals next to the gum line.

 2) Unpleasant taste in the mouth

   Unpleasant taste in the mouth should not be ignored as it is a sign of tooth decay!

3) Bleeding while brushing

   Bleeding gums isn't common so you better check that one the next time you visit the dentist

Wonderful post, Dr.Steffany, it is true that most of us do ignore signs of dental cavity. Due to which we aggravate our problem & its cure becomes difficult. If we get hold of our problem on time then some damage to the tooth can be saved.

Yes Dr. Steffany it is true that maximum people ignores all signs of affected tooth or gums, until it doesn't get worse with time. So better be cautious then repenting later on & also it is recommended to get in touch with the concerned dentist to give the best solution on dental issues.
