A dental filling can be used to restore the oral health of a patient who has suffered tooth decay or is at risk for developing cavities. Bacteria can cause damage to the hard structure (cementum enamel, dentin, and dentin) which then causes cavities. These bacteria include Streptococcus Mutans and Lactobacillus. If you leave it untreated, it can cause tooth loss, pain, and even death. Cariology, the study of dental carios, is a worldwide specialty that studies the causes and treatment.
Although caries can take place in different ways, they are all very similar in terms of their development and risk factors. At first, the caries appears as a small area of chalky material that may eventually develop into a large cavity. These caries may be visible occasionally. Other techniques, such as radiographs, can be used to detect smaller areas of the teeth and to analyze their effects.
Tooth decay occurs due to a specific bacterium, which produces acid that causes damage with the aid of carbohydrates such sucrose glucose glucose and fructose. The development of lactic acids has a negative effect on the pH balance. It is well-known that tooth loss and growth are constant. The pH below 5.5 causes tooth decay. It is possible to bring the teeth back into a healthy condition. Although it is impossible to save a substantial portion of the tooth structure due to lack of treatment, stem cell research suggests that there may be a way. Dental health organizations support only prophylactic and defensive measures such as proper diet and oral hygiene to prevent any dental complications.
