The bacteria in the mouth are particularly fond of the sugary residues that drag on the dental plaque. The bacteria-sugar mixture causes the production of acids that attack enamel and dentin, causing cavities.
In the absence of treatment, decay spreads to the pulp, with pain caused by hot, cold, and then to the root of the tooth.
Toddlers are not immune. Prevention requires good oral hygiene, regular fluoride absorption and moderate consumption of sugars.
