Plaque, a mix of bacteria and food particles, causes cavities by eroding tooth enamel.

Sugary foods fuel bacteria to produce acids, leading to plaque buildup on teeth.

Risk factors: excessive sugar, poor oral hygiene, lack of fluoride, dry mouth, acid reflux, and eating disorders.

Dry mouth reduces saliva, compromising the mouth's natural cleansing.

Acid reflux accelerates enamel erosion, increasing cavity risk.

Molars, hard to clean, are prime targets for cavities due to their structure.

Protect your smile with proper hygiene, healthy habits, and professional dental care.
