Cavity Opinions

Cavity Opinions Differ By Dentist

Understanding dental caries, its progression and proper diagnosis in early stages has become a challenge in clinical practice, research, and prevention. Tooth decay is a dynamic disease affecting the tooth’s surface in contact with bio-film, resulting in mineral loss, which leads to the localized destruction of the tooth’s hard tissue. During the early stages of the carious lesions there is an increase in enamel micro-porosity, which clinically appears as opacity or a stain that can be either white or brown. As micro-porosity increases, tooth structure collapses forming a cavity. This process is slow, and according to the evidence it can be stopped before the cavity appears. The carious process is highly variable, with periods of progression alternating with periods of stability; therefore, diagnostic methods must seek to detect the aforementioned changes, in order to determine the stage at which the disease can be arrested. In consequence, the development of an effective diagnostic method has been the goal of many researchers for a long time.


  • I used to visit Dr. Rostami back in Arizona few years ago. I was on my business trip in Toronto last week and all of a sudden before my meeting one of my front teeth filling came out while I was flossing, shocked and didn’t know what to do, thanks god I remembered  my Canadian dentist back in Mesa, couple of minutes search in the Internet I looked her up and she saw me the same day. I just want to say how I appreciated your help and we all in Arizona have  missed you doc.

  • Thank you very much! It was so easy to recommend your office to my husband. My family had seen Rita Rostami for years and now Rita Rostami is really great! Anytime someone I know needs a dentist, I’ll refer them to you. Thank you again,

  • I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated you getting me in on such short notice. Your compassion and understanding has contributed to my strength. Lorrie and the rest of your staff take the steps to make me feel comfortable and at ease. I look forward to seeing you at my treatments
