Tooth decay refers to a condition, which causes damage of the teeth because of the acid that is produced by prevailing mouth germs. A number of factors may be responsible for causing tooth decay, such as improper regular dental care (includes irregular brushing and flossing of teeth), living on a high sugar diet and other health conditions such as diabetes. If the tooth decay is severe, a filling or a root canal does help prevent further tooth damage.
