Bacteria in the mouth transform the food remains in acids
Acids accumulate in the plaque and dental tartar
Acids dissolve tooth enamel and dentine surfaces
That is the way how acids form holes or caries
Sugars increase the risk of having dental caries
Small caries generally do not produce pain
When they become larger you feel pain
Decay destroys the enamel and exposes the nerve of your tooth
Decay that reaches the dentine produces pain
The pain worsen with exposure to heat, cold, or sweets
Dental caries may cause tooth loss
