The stages of tooth decay are one of the important topics that every person interested in learning about the problem of tooth decay and how it is formed should take into account and take good care of it.
Tooth decay stages
The most important and prominent stages of tooth decay are as follows:
The acids that form in dental plaque attack the minerals that are found in the hard layer of the tooth, which is called the enamel, which is the outer layer covering the teeth, as the erosion of the enamel layer in the tooth leads to the presence of small holes in it and thus the infection of tooth decay.
Parts of the enamel layer are exposed to erosion, so that acids and germs have the ability to reach the second layer of the tooth, which is called dentin, which is the middle layer of the tooth and this layer has high flexibility and little ability to deal with acids coming from the enamel layer.
The arrival of tooth decay to this stage increases the problem and speed of infection of the tooth gradually, and if this continues, acids and germs will move on their way to the layers that make up the tooth, they go into the pulp layer, which is the inner layer of the tooth, which works to swell and irritate it. .
Dental caries affects the area of the bone supporting the tooth, as in the very advanced stages of caries the patient suffers from pain and severe sensitivity in the teeth when biting food.
It may come from any defense of the body against the penetration of germs by sending white blood cells that fight the resulting infection, and because of this, a tooth abscess is formed, as the process of tooth decay takes a little time.
The layers of the tooth continue to erode one after the other due to the decay, and this process takes a greater and greater speed, and the decay begins mostly in the area of the back mills.
Although this structure facilitates chewing the food, but it is an excellent place for accumulation and accumulation of food residues, and cleaning the teeth here is more difficult than cleaning the front teeth, which are more contact and easy to reach.
