Decays

The Problem (Also Known As)

“Cavities” or “Holes”, the destruction of your tooth enamel, the hard, outer layer of your teeth

The Cause

Plaque, a sticky film of bacteria, constantly forms on your teeth. When you eat or drink foods containing sugars, the bacteria in plaque produce acids that attack tooth enamel.
Poor tooth brushing technique or lack of brushing can put teeth at higher risk of getting decays.

Treatment

If the decays are still in their early days, we always try to treat them conservatively by remineralising with topical fluoride or take-home “toothmousse” application to stop the decay process.
Once the decays have progressed into cavities, they need to be restored with fillings.

If Left Untreated

Food and plaque can get stuck in the cavities and cause bad smell, pain and worsening of the decays.

Don’t put up with uncertainty around your oral health.

We’ve seen too many people avoid treatment or opting for temporary fixes, and end up with major surgeries, huge medical bills and losing their teeth.

That doesn’t have to be you.
