Tooth decay is the breakdown of the outer surface of the tooth. It happens when sugary or starchy foods are left on the teeth. The natural bacteria found in the mouth also consume these foods and produce acid that overtime destroy the enamel and root surfaces of the teeth. Brushing your childs teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily can reduce the risk of tooth decay . Provide a balanced diet and schedule regular dental visits.
