INTRODUCTION

Teeth (singular tooth) are small, calcified, whitish structures found in the jaws (or mouths) of many vertebrates that are used to tear, scrape, and chew food. Some animals, particularly carnivores, also use teeth for hunting or defense. The roots of teeth are covered by gums. Teeth are not made of bone, but rather of tissues of varying density and hardness.

Teeth are among the most distinctive (and long-lasting) features of mammal species. Paleontologists use teeth to identify fossil species and determine their relationships. The shape of the animal’s teeth is related to its diet. For example, plant matter is hard to digest, so herbivores have many molars for chewing. Carnivores, on the other hand, need canines to kill prey and to tear meat.

Dental caries, also known as tooth decay or cavity, is a disease wherein bacterial processes damage hard tooth structure .These tissues progressively break down, producing dental caries. Two groups of bacteria are responsible for initiating caries: Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacillus. If left untreated, the disease can lead to pain, tooth loss, infection, and, in severe cases, death.# .These tissues progressively break down, producing dental caries.Dental caries is a mouth disease that causes damage to certain structures of the tooth. This damage is caused by bacterial growth in the mouth. There are two types of bacteria that commonly cause this damage; a species called Streptococcus mutans, and species in the Lactobacillus genus.

Introduction

One of the earliest microbial diseases know to mankind
It is usually referred by
Pain
Unaesthetic appearance

Degenerative microbial disease affecting the tooth causing decalcification of the mineralised structure and destruction of the vital structures(soft tissue)
Occurs widely, without any age, sex and race predilection.
Its occurrence is 97%
It is more common in countries with high nutritious diet pattern particularly sugars (simple carbohydrates )

History of Dental Caries

There is a long history of dental caries. Over a million years ago, hominids such as Australopithecus suffered from cavities.
Archaeological evidence shows that tooth decay is an ancient disease dating far into prehistory.
Skulls dating from a million years ago through the neolithic period show signs of caries, excepting those from the Paleolithic and Mesolithic ages.

Diagnosing techniques

Diagnodent
A pulsed red light (655nm)
And then it analyses the tooth with the emitted fluorescence from bacterial products
It is used for follow up and progress of time to time visit of patients
Although it has few disadvantages

OLD SCHOOL TECHNIQUES

Promote dental hygiene
Target and eliminate the three factors responsible for caries
PLAQUE- Floss, mouthwash, brushing (interdental if required)
SUGAR- Rubbery chewy sugars and also simple sugars must be avoided
TIME- Mouth should be rinsed after every meal and brushing should be carried out. 7

Conclusion

Although newer techniques emerge to handle caries its always advised to treat the cause rather than treating the effects
Hence caries should be approached in a completely refreshed and updated mindset.
