What is a Dental Cavity?

Dental Caries (also known as tooth decay or a cavity) is an infection, usually bacterial in origin, that causes demineralization of the hard tissues (enamel, dentin and cementum) and destruction of the organic matter of the tooth, usually by production of acid by hydrolysis of the food debris accumulated on the tooth surface.

Tooth decay is a common disorder, second only to the common cold. Cavities usually occur in children and young adults but can affect any person. In dentistry, amalgam is an alloy of mercury with various metals used for dental fillings.

The average cost for dental cavity filling is between $122 and $325+. However, with a discount dental plan, the same procedure would cost you on between $40 and $73. Costs will vary depending on where you live and your needs.
