Hello readers and readers, how are you? Here is Jully from JM Odontologia Integrada and in today’s post we will explain what caries is and how they arise. Caries is one of the most common problems in dentists’ offices. It can affect people of all ages, from babies to the elderly, and as soon as it is detected, it should be treated immediately.
What is caries?
Caries is a form of tooth decay that develops beneath its surface. For this reason, it is usually difficult for the patient to detect. The best way to find out if you have cavities is to consult a trusted dentist who will check your teeth and see if this problem really exists.
There are three different types of caries:
Coronary caries – the most common of these, remain on the chewing surface or between the teeth. This type can occur in both children and adults, also affecting baby teeth.
Root caries – appear when the roots of the tooth are exposed due to the retraction of the gums. This retraction, which happens as we get older, leaves the root without enamel protecting it, which ends up causing its deterioration.
Recurrent caries – when caries appears in previously made restorations and crowns. They occur due to the accumulation of plaques in this region
