What is Tooth Decay?

Tooth decay is damage to a tooth caused by dental plaque turning sugars into acid. If plaque is allowed to build up, it can lead to problems, such as holes in the teeth (dental caries) and gum disease. Dental abscesses, which are collections of pus at the end of the teeth or in the gums, may develop.

What are the symptoms?

The most common symptoms of tooth decay are:

  • Toothache – either continuous pain keeping you awake, or occasional sharp pain without an obvious cause; it can sometimes be painless
  • Tooth sensitivity – you may feel tenderness or pain when eating or drinking something hot, cold or sweet
  • Grey, brown or black spots appearing on your teeth
  • Bad breath
  • An unpleasant taste in your mouth

Treatment of Tooth Decay

Early tooth decay can be reversed, and this is why it is important that you see a dentist regularly (for adults at least once every 2 years). Early tooth decay is described as being before a hole has formed in the tooth. Steps to treat this include;

  • Reducing how much and how frequently you have sugary foods and drinks
  • brushing your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste

If your tooth decay is beyond this early stage, your dentist will advise what the best treatment it for your case
