Dental Decay

Dental decay begins with a small patch of softened enamel at the tooth’s surface, often hidden from sight in the fissures or between the teeth. It can spread into the dentine (the softer, sensitive part of the tooth beneath the enamel). The weakened enamel then collapses to form a cavity and the tooth is progressively destroyed.

It is vital to detect decay in the early stages so we can treat the problem and prevent further damage to the tooth and surrounding tissues. If left undetected and untreated, the decay can lead to serious problems that require extensive and costly treatments.

Our Advice

We recommend the following steps for looking after your teeth, particularly if you have dental decay:

  • Brush twice a day with a toothbrush containing fluoride and an anti-bacterial agent
  • Reduce the number of times you have sugar, fruit juice and fizzy drinks
  • Attend dental check-ups and dental hygienist visits as often as your dentist suggests
