- Dental Caries (or tooth decay) is the most common of oral disease caused by the interplay of three elements: bacteria in the mouth, dietary sugars and the tooth surface.Oral bacteria aggregate and grow on the surface of teeth where they form a deposit called dental plaque.Caries will occur when dietary sugars are regularly taken up by plaque left behind by ineffective brushing.Plaque bacteria metabolise dietary sugars into acids that dissolve the surface of teeth and eventually lead to the formation of a cavity.
