Tooth decay causes permanent damage to the protective layers of your teeth. If left untreated, it can lead to toothache and a dental infection. Tooth decay is the #1 reason for tooth loss.


Tooth decay is only reversible if caught early. It causes damage to your teeth even when you sleep. The only way to stop it is to see the dentist or a dental therapist.


Most people don't know they have tooth decay because they get no pain. Tooth decay is mostly invisible but sometimes you may see a spot or even a hole.
