Dental decay or dental cavity is basically a hole in the tooth. It is caused by oral bacteria which digest food and produce acids. Such acids can “eat away” or “dissolve” your tooth, forming a hole. Dental decay often goes unnoticed until the tooth starts to feel sensitive to hot, cold or sweet, and sometimes gives a strong throbbing toothache which means the decay has reached and damaged the nerve.
