Ignoring your tooth cavity for too long? This is what can happen

What is the cause of a tooth cavity?

Teeth are made up of mineral complexes including calcium and phosphates. When you eat sticky food (which includes fermentable carbohydrates), the bacteria present in the plaque (a biofilm adhered to the teeth) ferments the sticky carbs producing acids as byproducts. When these acids come in prolonged contact with the teeth, the teeth start losing the minerals and forms cavities. Cavities initially are chalky white when dried and slowly turn brown to black. As soon as a cavity is formed it starts trapping more food and more acids are produced and a vicious cycle is formed which leads to deepening of the cavities and further symptoms like sensitivity and toothache.
