Tooth Decay Treatment

Dental caries, or dental decay, is a common disease, which causes cavities and discoloration of both permanent and deciduous or 'baby' teeth. As the disease progresses in a tooth it becomes weaker and its nerve may be damaged.

Dental decay occurs when bacteria in the mouth make acid which then dissolves the tooth. Bacteria only produce this acid when they are exposed to sugar. If you have a sensible diet, a good flow of saliva, a cleaning routine and your teeth get an appropriate fluoride exposure, you are less likely to get decay.
