Tooth Decay - What Causes It?

Tooth Decay - What Causes It?

Tooth decay or cavities are permanently damaged areas in the hard surface of the teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. Cavities, also called tooth decay or caries, are caused by cavity formation which damages both the outer layer known as ‘enamel’ and the inner layer of the tooth known as ‘dentin’.

When remnants of food such as milk, cereal, chocolates, fruit or cake get stuck in the teeth, they get transformed into acid by the bacteria. The mixture of the acid with the food remnants along with the bacteria and saliva forms plaques around the teeth, the high acidic content of which causes cavities to form around the enamel. In its advanced stages, the cavity tends to destroy the blood vessels and nerves of the tooth.

Cavities and tooth decay are among the world's most common health problems. They're especially common in children, teenagers and older adults. But anyone who has teeth can get cavities, including infants. If cavities aren't treated, they get larger and affect deeper layers of your teeth. They can lead to a severe toothache, infection and tooth loss. Regular dental visits and good brushing and flossing habits are your best protection against cavities and tooth decay.

Causes:

  1. Regular consumption of high carbohydrate food and sweets might result in cavity formation in your teeth.
  2. In older people, the gums tend to get separated from the teeth. This might make the teeth more vulnerable to plaque infection.
  3. The teeth filling tends to decay as you grow old. This might result in cavity formations.
  4. As you get old, the secretion of naturally produced fluoride which helps in cavity prevention, diminishes, thus making you more prone to tooth decays.

Symptoms:

  1. Experiencing severe pain in the tooth every time you eat something sweet, cold or hot.
  2. Tooth becoming extremely sensitive.
  3. Formation of holes in the tooth, coupled with brown or black stains on the tooth surface.

Treatment:
After diagnosis, the damaged part of the tooth is removed with the help of a drill. Gold, silver or alloy fillings replace the hole formed due to the cavity. Also, root canal might be recommended if the tooth roots are destroyed completely. The tissues and other blood vessels of the tooth are replaced by a secured material.

Tooth decay can be prevented if you maintain daily oral hygiene such as using fluoride toothpaste for brushing your teeth, attending regular dental check-ups as you age and completely eliminating high carbohydrate and sugar-based foods from your diet.

My teeth is broken partially since 2010 and I want to correct it please give me advice.
Hello If your tooth which is broken is reached to pull which will be in centre part of your teeth and as you are giving history which has happened , then the colour of teeth might be changed. If this is the case you're have to get the root canal treatment done after that get the cap done for it If it not involving pulp you can just get it filled.

Even after the rct is complete, patients must visit their endodontists or dentists to get the proper restorative work completed on the tooth.

Sir you live in delhi so I suggest that first you consult a local dentist to check and rule out cavities. Cavities, if present, should be excavated and tooth should be restored. Cavities can cause sensitivity.

I have pain in my teeth from last 2 days. Which tab I should prefer to overcome this problem?

We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning, root canal treatment & capping. Until then apply clove oil on the decayed tooth. Rinse frequently with mouth wash.
