Cavities, or dental caries, are caused over time as uncleaned plaque (bacteria and leftover food debris) wears the enamel and attacks the interior of the tooth. If cavities (tooth decay) are left untreated for too long, they can cause headaches, pain and the need for root canal procedures, and even the loss of teeth. You can naturally prevent cavities by thoroughly brushing and flossing your teeth twice daily.
