Simple Strategies for Preventing Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is one of the most common diseases, second only to the cold, and most people have at least one filling or more, but tooth decay or dental caries is also quite a complex disease. When left untreated, it can cause infection and pain, and in extreme cases a dental abscess. The very worst-case scenario is for an infected tooth to become life-threatening, a situation that can develop if the infection-causing bacteria get into the sinus cavities in the upper jaw, and from there into the brain.
