Dental cavity is the softening of your tooth enamel and breakdown of teeth caused due to the acids secreted by plaque bacteria.
The loss of mineral from the tooth enamel needs immediate attention and if left untreated it may eventually result in a cavity or a hole, damaging rest of the teeth.
Tooth decay occurs when sugary, sticky food and drinks become trapped between teeth and are not thoroughly cleaned. Every time you eat a sugary food it favours the plaque formation weakening the enamel making you vulnerable to tooth decay.
A dental cavity is an indication of poor oral health and hygiene. Proper dental care is necessary for supporting your overall health and well-being.
