Cavities are extremely common dental occurrences. But what exactly are cavities, and what causes them? Is the damage that they do permanent? Watch this informative video clip to learn the answer.
Bacterial acids cause cavities, which are holes in tooth enamel. Cavities can cause tooth loss, infection, and damage to the surrounding bone and tissue. If you don’t brush and floss properly at least twice daily, you run the risk of tooth decay, which manifests as holes in teeth, toothaches, sensitivity, or infection. You must go to a dentist in order to have your cavities treated safely.
