Restorative Treatments For Tooth Decay
Tooth decay is a common problem for dental patients of all ages. The condition occurs when acids dissolve areas of the tooth enamel, causing cavities or holes to form. The dissolution of the enamel occurs in the presence of acid, regardless of the acid's source. Acid is released by oral microbes as a product of digestion. Additionally, acids contained in food and drinks can also cause decay. There are many restorative dental treatments that can be used to treat tooth decay.
