Tooth decay

Cavity is a hole in a tooth ... when decay is at a fairly advanced stage. All teeth can be reached at any age.

Tooth decay is due to the presence of bacteria in the mouth and on the teeth. These bacteria promote the presence of acidic molecules in the mouth and on the teeth. And this acidity attacks the outside of the tooth (enamel) and the dentine (deeper).

Plaque also promotes the proliferation of certain families of bacteria, and the development of gingivitis. It is the repeated and regular attack of the acids which in the long run causes a decay.

There are several stages of caries that begin with demineralization of the tooth surface. At this first initial stage that is manifested by a whitish spot, no hole! An orifice appears at a later stage.

Dental care differs according to the importance of decay. Generally, an amalgam is put in place, other times, more care is needed (such as setting up a crown).

It is important to adopt preventive measures to prevent the occurrence of caries, it requires a good hygiene of the mouth, nutritional measures, but also controls and dental care.
