HOW DO WE UNDERSTAND İF OUR TEETH ARE ROTTEN OR NOT?
There are several ways to know if your teeth are rotten.
Observation: Some, but not all, color changes in your teeth may be signs of decay. Your dentist uses a pointed metal tool called sond to look for possible signs of decay. Healthy tooth enamel is hard and show resistance to the pressure exerted by the sond. The rotten enamel is soft and the tool penetrates slightly.
Rotten Dye:The teeth are rinsed with this. Paint sticks to rotten places and does not stay on sturdy places.
X-ray: The x-ray allows the dentist to see caries that are not on the surface. But the x-ray is not very successful in seeing small bruises. Existing fillers can prevent the appearance of rotting
