Tooth morphology and its relation to tooth decay.

 

Generally, there are two types of tooth decay. These can be described by its location on the tooth as follows:

  • Decay found in the pits and fissures (grooves) located on the top surface of teeth. (These grooves act as a food trap,eventually causing dental decay)
  • Decay that takes place on the smooth-surfaces of teeth.

 

There are three categories of smooth-surface caries, these are as follows:

 

  1. Interproximal caries, also known as proximal caries. This type of decay develops on the smooth surfaces located between adjacent teeth.
  2. Root caries. This type develops on the root surfaces of teeth.
  3. Tooth decay developing on any other smooth tooth surface.

The most common of smooth-surfaces decay is Proximal caries

 

which occurs when plaque starts collecting just under the contact between the two adjacent teeth. This is especially the case when these areas are not cleaned regularly (using the dental floss for example).

Although the presentation of the above mentioned types of tooth decay may differ, the risk factors and development remain generally similar.
