Who does it affect?
Tooth decay affects people of all ages. Since it is a result of the plaque buildup on our teeth, it all depends on what we eat and how often we clean our teeth. People who eat sugary foods are more susceptible to tooth decay. Also, people who don’t regularly clean their teeth and visit a dentist may find that serious tooth decay is forming in their mouth without ever knowing.
How to treat it
The best way to treat tooth decay is by visiting your dentist for regular checkups. If dentists are able to catch cavities before they reach the centre of the tooth, the use of fluoride can help to replace missing enamel. However, more serious cases require the installation of crowns or even a root canal treatment. If your dentist needs to remove a tooth, they will recommend partial dentures or bridges.
