Understanding How Cavities Form

Unless you brush and floss your teeth and see your dentist for regular appointments, you’ll be at a high risk for tooth decay. Tooth decay, or cavities, can affect people of all ages. Watch this video to find out how cavities form.

After you eat, particles from your food are left on your teeth, and these particles feed bacteria that produce acid. The acid breaks down your tooth enamel, exposing the inner layers of your teeth and putting you at risk of tooth decay.

See Dr. Michael J. Wei twice per year to protect yourself from cavities and enjoy great oral health. Dr. Wei is a dentist serving Manhattan who can offer tooth extractions, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and more. Call our office at (212) 982-4080 to schedule an appointment.
