Caries (cavity, tooth decay) is a chronic disease of dental hard tissues. Factors leading to the development of caries are many, and the most significant are bacteria present in dental plaque (debris).
Due to break down of carbohydrates from the plaque, they lead to formation of acids, change in pH-value on the teeth surface and to the first step in the development of caries – the demineralization of tooth enamel.
After enamel, decay progressively infiltrates deep and wide affecting other dental tissues. Timely intervention is necessary in order to prevent progression of caries and bacteria infiltration into dental pulp (“tooth nerve”).
Basic treatment in restorative dentistry is caries removal and filling of cavity. At our clinic, tooth decay removal is painless, and fillings are made from quality materials, both on front teeth and in lateral region.
