Deterioration of teeth – causes, symptoms, prevention and treatment of Tooth Decay
Today, we will learn about a common problem related to the health of the mouth and learn how little caution and awareness can save us from the decomposition and toothache.
The tooth teeth are made up of calcium, phosphorus and other mineral. However, the hardest part of the human body is its teeth but due to negligence and lack of awareness, they also become victims of decomposition.
Due to the toothache , there is a problem in eating, and if the front teeth rot, then the beauty of the face gets stained and the lack of self-esteem decreases.
So let’s know about the causes of tooth decay and how to avoid it.
Causes of Tooth Decay
There are three main causes of tooth decay –
Food and drink
The food source, which contains high levels of carbohydrate and sugar, increases the risk of teeth degradation, if food is sticky, like toffee, sweets, potato chips, then the risk of decomposition is even more.
Dental cleaning and their texture
Doing the cleaning of teeth properly is like invitation to rot. It is necessary to clean teeth twice daily. In this way, you can reduce the growth of bacteria present in the mouth and also clean the trapped food products. To keep the teeth clean you should brush, floss and mouthwash in the right way.
Everyone cleanses any bacteria in their mouth. But how well we clean our mouth determines whether the bacterial level will increase or decrease. And if there is a rise in them, then there is a rotting factor for them.
As soon as you stop eating the bacteria begin their work, they create a kind of white layer on the teeth that we call plaques. This plaque is the home of the bacteria and can be stopped by brushing it twice in a regular manner. Bacteria present in the mouth require carbohydrate and sugars to form acid, which leads to tooth decay.
Symptoms of tooth decay
The first symptom of tooth decay is the appearance of a brownish stain on the upper surface of the tooth (enamel). Then this stain is slightly larger and takes the form of a hole and the food starts to fade in that place. By eating food, the process of rubbing becomes sharp and the hole of the tooth becomes big. When this hole grows a bit deeper and reaches the inner surface (Dentin), then we start getting cold or sweet.
When the decomposition goes into it even more then it reaches the pulp (vein of the tooth) and it infects, and then we have severe pain in the teeth.
Prevention of Tooth Decay
Check your teeth with your dentist every six months.
Get up early in the morning (how to insert the habit of early morning rush) and take time for your daily
Stand in front of the mirror and brush it so that you can see whether the cleaning of teeth is being done properly.

Tooth Decay Treatment

If the rot is small and on the upper surface of the teeth, then your dentist will clean it and filling it in the hole. This filling can also be of the color of the tooth and may also be of Metallic, it will depend on your choice.
If a large part of the tooth is damaged due to the decomposition and the tooth pain is complained then the dentist will take the first x-ray of the teeth and then tell you about the treatment.
Most highly rotten teeth are saved by root canal therapy and then a cap is applied on it.
Artificial fix teeth can be applied to the place, leaving too much defective and completely rotten teeth.
