Symptoms of initial caries

Initial caries is manifested by the presence of white or dark-colored stains on the tooth surface.White spots are caused by leaching of calcium (demineralization) from the enamel, which is porous and brittle.The surface is smooth and matte spots.

The most common initial caries diagnosed in the cervical area of ​​the upper or lower teeth.Pain s

yndrome in this stage of disease are usually absent.Very rarely, there is increased sensitivity to cold or acid.

  • carious tooth is cleaned with 3% hydrogen peroxide solution;
  • produced drying the tooth surface with a cotton swab or warm air;
  • superimposed application remineralizing solution for 15-20 minutes;
  • dried tooth surface;
