It’s possible that you don’t even realize that you are suffering from it. A lot of people are unaware that they have a cavity. The majority of people feel an opening when it has grown into a size that is quite significant. You might be experiencing tooth decay in silence. There are things that you can do in order to keep your teeth from decay. In this instructional video, you will be taught what to do to prevent tooth decay.
Cavities are also known as dental decay, or dental caries. They occur when the bacteria that live in your mouth make acid. In time, this acid causes tooth decay. This can take several months if you don’t keep up with good oral hygiene. That’s a lot of time to allow a cavity to form. This is the reason why seeing the general dentist is so important. They can detect decay before they get too bad. Even if they’re tiny the dentist can fill them. However, when they become too big, the entire tooth could need to be taken out. Be careful not to let this happen. It is important to floss regularly as well.
