Cementum, Enamel and dentin, and pulp tissue make up a tooth. The dental crown is the part of a tooth that is visible to the oral cavity, and the tooth root is the part below the dental crown.
Damage to a tooth's surface, or enamel, is stated as tooth decay. It occurs when bacteria in your mouth produce acids that erode up at your teeth's enamel. Cavities (dental caries) are holes in the teeth that are caused by tooth decay. If left untreated, dental decay can result in extreme discomfort, severe infection, and even tooth loss.
Maintaining healthy teeth, gums, and tongue requires proper dental or oral care. With correct diagnosis and care, oral disorders such as bad breath, dry mouth, canker or cold sores, TMD, tooth decay, or thrush can all be treated.
