How To Prevent It

Tooth decay, or dental caries, is the process by which the tooth tissue is destroyed. In it’s earliest stages caries is only visible to a dentist and on x-rays, so regular check up are essential. It first appears as small dark or opaque patches on the tooth surface which, if left untreated, will spread within the tooth. Dental decay is rarely painful until it is far advanced and, if left, the tooth may have to be extracted.
