Tooth Decay is the process of destruction of tooth structure. Tooth Decay is caused by the plaque. Plaque is a sticky material that forms on the surface of teeth. Plaque can cause damage when it combines with sugars or starches, provided by food or drinks. This combination produces acids, which destroy enamel layer on teeth.
