The conventional decay begins with the emergence of cariogenic microorganisms in the composition of plaque, hard Tartar. The microbes process the food, turns out acid, which leaches calcium, destroys the enamel.

Insufficient oral hygiene leads to the development of the disease.

Cervical caries develops gradually, from barely noticeable white spots to deep-seated lesions. In the beginning, looks like stains on the tooth surface in the cervical area. This stage is preliminary. If you do not pay attention, the destruction continues, the areas of the tooth are transformed into superficial, middle and deep carious cavity.
