How do I prevent decay?

Dental decay is the decalcification and weakening of your teeth. It is caused due the bacteria in your mouth feeding on the sugars you eat and drink producing an acid. It is this acid that softens your teeth resulting in cavities.

The best way to prevent decay is to have good oral hygiene, to reduce the amount of sugary things you consume, and to lead a healthy lifestyle.

What happens if my tooth cannot be repaired?

If your tooth has decayed or broken beyond repair unfortunately the best thing long term would be to have the tooth removed. This would eliminate the risk of further problems such as pain and infections. For some people they opt to prolong the inevitable by leaving the tooth. Some people get lucky and have no problems for months or sometimes years. However, some people are not so lucky and have persistent problems.
