When your child complains about a tooth that hurts, chances are they have a cavity. A cavity is when the tooth decays or breaks down and creates a hole. That hole can grow bigger and deeper over time, which is why it's important to get it repaired with a filling.
How do cavities form? From plaque. Plaque is a sticky, slimy substance made up of the bacteria in your mouth. That bacteria makes acids, and when plaque clings to your teeth, the acids eat away at the outer layer of your teeth called enamel.
A filling is when the decay is removed and replaced with a strong material to keep the teeth healthy.
