Your teeth might be decaying now without you knowing it. A majority of people do not realize a cavity is developing. A cavity is usually felt just when it is of a large size. You might be experiencing tooth decay in silence. There are things that you can try to stop tooth decay. In this instructional video, you will be taught what to do to prevent tooth decay.
Cavities can also be referred to as dental decay or caries. This happens when bacteria within your mouth produce acid. Acid wears away at the teeth over time. The process can last for many months if you fail to keep up with good oral hygiene. That’s a lot of time for a dental cavity to develop. This is the reason why seeing the general dentist is so important. They can detect decay prior to them becoming too serious. They can also fill cavities that are tiny. However, when they become to large enough, the entire tooth could have to be removed. Be careful not to let this happen. You should floss regularly as well.
