Can you spot the decay?

Protect Your Teeth From Decay - What is Tooth Decay?

Decay, also known as cavities or caries, is one of the most preventable diseases in promoting good oral health. The natural bacteria that live in your mouth create plaque. Plaque is the soft whitish film you can feel on your teeth or scrape off with your fingernail. As plaque turns yellow and hardens, or calcifies, it develops into tartar which only your hygienist can remove.
