What causes most dental problems?
Tooth decay is the most common dental problem of the people of your age. Tooth decay is caused by the plaque-a sticky layer of bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth and gums. The bacteria in plaque break down sugars from the food you eat to form strong acids.

These acids can cause tooth decay. If plaque is not removed from your teeth every day, it can harden into a substance called calculus. Plaque and calculus can collect in the spaces between the teeth and near the gums, causing gum disease, also called periodontal disease. At first, the gums might become red and swollen and might bleed easily. As periodontal the disease gets worse, gums pull away from the teeth and form pockets. These pockets can become filled with bacteria. The bacteria can destroy the bones and other tissues that hold the teeth in place. Then some teeth might become loose and fall out-----even healthy teeth.
