Tooth decay can occur when acid is produced from plaque, which builds up on your teeth.
If plaque is allowed to build up, it can lead to further problems, such as dental caries (holes in the teeth), gum disease or dental abscesses, which are collections of pus at the end of the teeth or in the gums.
Tooth decay can affect all three of your teeth’s layers: the hard outer layer called enamel; the middle layer, called dentin; and finally the soft centre called pulp, which contains nerves and blood vessels. When more layers are affected by tooth decay, more damage is caused, requiring more treatment. So visit your dentist regularly, so early tooth decay can be treated as soon as possible and the prevention of decay can begin.
