We can describe tooth decay as the wearing down of the layers of enamel and dentin that form the outer surface of your teeth. This loss of enamel can result in a hole or cavity appearing in your tooth, resulting in increased sensitivity and pain.
Tooth Decay Treatment
Why does tooth decay happen?
Tooth decay happens when plaque builds up on your teeth. The acidity from this plaque causes the enamel and dentin layers to dissolve, which leads to decay. Being a smoker, or drinking alcohol can also encourage tooth decay, as these factors affect your saliva production.
Tooth Decay Treatment Costs
Tooth decay treatment at an early stage requires simple dental preventive procedures. However, teeth with cavities and rotten teeth treatment is a combination of multiple dental treatments; like tooth extraction, dental implants, dental fillings etc.

FAQs on Tooth Decay
Can you get rotten teeth fixed?
Improper dental hygiene and cleaning can lead to serious issues with your tooth and often result in rotten teeth. In some cases, dentists can save your rotten teeth which depends on how severe the rot is, and if it has spread down to the root. With healthy roots, saving the tooth is an easier dental procedure.
If you are worried about your rotten teeth, contact our dental clinic to arrange an appointment with our dentists today.
Are cavities reversible?
Tooth enamel loss can be stopped or reversed at the early stage. Minerals from saliva and fluoride from toothpaste or other sources can repair the enamel. However, if this dental condition is not treated and the process continues, the enamel will be weakened and destroyed which will result in dental cavities. A dental cavity is a permanent damage that dentist needs to repair with dental fillings.
Do I need to get my cavities filled?
At the early stage, enamel decay is easier to prevent. As soon as you notice enamel decay, you should take preventive measures. Once you have dental cavities, you should visit your dentist for professional advice and treatment.
