Tooth is exposed to chocolate/drinks/ or anything containing sugar and starches. Over time, the enamel is destroyed, forming a cavity. The signs and symptoms of cavities vary, depending on their extent and location.
When a cavity is just beginning, you may not have any pain and discomfort and can repair with a dental filling. But if you ignore & cavities aren’t treated, they get larger and affect deeper layers of your teeth. They can lead to severe toothache, infection and tooth loss [Root canal treatment / extraction].
Regular dental visits and good brushing and flossing habits are your best protection against cavities and tooth decay.
