Pit and Fissure Decay
The most common area for tooth decay is in the pits and fissures of the back teeth.
Despite brushing regularly twice a day, the bristles of the tooth brush are not able to clean the fine and deep fissures of the back teeth.
The second most common area for tooth decay is in between the back teeth.
Food and bacteria love to collect in between the teeth.
Regular flossing can help to prevent inter-dental decay.
Root Surface Decay
The third most common area for tooth decay is at the neck of the teeth, at the root surface, and gum line area.
Teeth often look beautiful from the outside.
However, only x-rays can show the presence of decay inside the tooth.
