Tooth cavities or dental cavities are normally caused due to acid build up in the mouth. This happens when the bacteria in your mouth reacts with certain types of food, starchy and sugary treats, and converts the food leftovers into acids. Bacteria, acid, food debris and saliva all combine together to form plaque that sticks onto your teeth. When this plaque is not removed from the teeth, it turns into tartar and causes decay.
