What is Tooth Decay and how will or could it effect my chewing?

Teeth could literally die from tooth decay. Firstly, Bacteria will eat through the enamel, creating a cavity. Secondly, if cleaning is neglected and the cavity is not repaired, the bacteria will invade through the dentine into the pulp. The infection will stimulate a nerve, causing toothache which is a warning that there is a problem. Thirdly, the entire pulp and even the root canal may become infected. What is the answer? Clean and floss daily and visit a hygienist every 6 months. As you can now realize, the digestive process as well as the teeth will be affected which a minor inexpensive discipline can avoid.
