When Does the teeth needs a filling?
1) First the decay start in the enamel layer of the tooth, this is called a superfacial decay which can be treated very safely and easily during this first stage.
2) When the decay progress to the next layer (Dentin), the Dentin is a very soft layer, and when bacteria enters the Dentin, the progress of the caries becomes very fast, and sometimes painful.
