Tooth decay or rotten teeth is a serious oral problem which causes decay and damage to teeth. It is caused by bacteria in plaque which is produced in the mouth. Plaque gets accumulated on the tooth cavities when the mouth is not rinsed or cleaned properly and it produces acids that corrode the tooth enamel and causes decay. It is often the cause of bad breath, tooth pain and other oral problems. Serious infections can often lead to the loss of teeth and severe pain.
