Decay happens over time and is caused by eating sugar too frequently during the day and improper cleaning of teeth. If plaque is left on teeth, it can slowly soften your teeth and cause holes to develop.

If you are able to limit any sugary items to three meals a day and one other time during the day, you are less likely to develop decay.

Brushing with fluoride toothpaste helps to repair your teeth. Flossing will help to remove any food present between your teeth and prevent decay from developing.
