As cavities form on your teeth, they eat away at your tooth enamel until they reach what’s called dentin.
Bact€ria then eats the dentin until the bact€ria reacher the blood vessels and nerves in the middle of your tooth. This is called the pulp.
From the pulp, bact€ria can spread to other areas in the mouth if you wait too long to treat a cavity. The bact€ria attack more tooth tissue the longer you wait to take care of a cavity.
If you’re looking for some relief from your toothache, then give these home remedies a try
brushing twice a day
using toothpaste or mouthwash that contains fluoride and drinking fluoridated tap water
limiting snacking between meals
cutting down on sugary drinks and eating fewer sweets and starches

A study from the 1930s linked cavities to a diet high in phytic acid. However, there is a lack of recent evidence to support this.
A 2004 study found that phytic acid affected mineral absorption from food. Some online articles use this study to draw further conclusions. They suggest that phytic acid may also break down minerals in enamel and lead to tooth decay. It is worth noting that the study involved fewer than 20 participants, however
If ignored or left untreated, cavities may lead to several other issues such as Tooth fractures (cracked tooth), nerve damage, dead tooth, and severe infection. Therefore, it is advisable to visit your dentist as soon as you experience pain or signs of cavities in your mouth to prevent the cavity from becoming worse.
