Cavities & Tooth Decay

Cavities, also known as tooth decay or caries, occur when bacteria and acid destroy and penetrate the hard outer layer of the tooth called the enamel, creating a hole. Cavities begin as tiny holes that get bigger and bigger if left untreated. Cavities are caused by a combination of factors, including plaque and bacteria, sipping sugary drinks, eating sugary food, frequent snacking and not cleaning your teeth well every day. At Dentique Dental of Downers Grove, our dentists can diagnose cavities proactively at your routine dental visits and discuss the best ways to prevent cavities like maintaining good mouth health with daily brushing and flossing, using a fluoride toothpaste, and reducing sugary foods and drinks in your diet.
