Cavities

Cavities, also known as tooth decay, are a common dental problem that affects people of all ages. They are caused by a combination of factors, including bacteria in the mouth, sugary and starchy foods, and poor oral hygiene.

When you eat foods that contain sugar and starch, the bacteria in your mouth feed on these substances and produce acids. These acids can then erode the protective enamel layer of your teeth, leading to cavities.

If left untreated, cavities can cause a range of dental problems, including tooth pain, sensitivity, and even tooth loss. That’s why it’s important to take steps to prevent cavities and to seek dental treatment as soon as possible if you suspect you have a cavity.

Preventing cavities involves following a good oral hygiene routine, which includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and using an antiseptic mouthwash. You should also try to limit your intake of sugary and starchy foods and drinks, such as candy, soda, and chips.
