Teeth Begin To Decay Below the Gum line

Posted on 11/9/2020 by Office
When plaque, a sticky film filled with bacteria, builds up inside your mouth, the bacteria produce acids that dissolve the tooth enamel. Over time, you may develop a pit in your teeth, leading to the formation of a cavity. Plaque notoriously accumulates in specific areas in your teeth.
