What Causes Tooth Decay

We all have germs in our mouths-some good and some bad.  The bad germs and bacteria cause cavities.


Germs and Bacteria can be spread from parents to infants and toddlers through saliva. ( Do not share cups, eating utensils or food, and don’t “clean off pacifier”s by putting them in your own mouth first.)

Sweet or high-carbohydrate foods or sweet drinks feed the germs that cause decay.

The germs make acids.  The acids cause tooth decay.  Tooth decay can be stopped if it is caught early.

Regular brushing with fluoridated toothpaste removes the germs.  Fluoride helps stop the cavity-causing acids.
