Good and healthy teeth are an amazing balance of aesthetic beauty and engineering. The main cause of toothache is decay of teeth which results from decomposition of food particles on them. It is basically a breakdown or destruction of the tooth structure by demineralisation. The sugars and carbohydrates that are present in the mouth produce acids as a result of microbial attack. These acids erode the teeth causing teeth decay.
