How Cavities Form
Did you know your teeth are part of a complex ecosystem filled with saliva and bacteria? By eating lots of sugar you feed the bacteria and they grow and produce acid.
This acid slowly eats away at your teeth’s enamel and creates a cavity. Tooth decay is the result of an infection with certain types of bacteria that use sugars in food to make acids. Over time, these acids can make a cavity in the tooth. Good oral hygiene will remove this harmful bacteria and regular dental visits will keep your teeth healthy.
