Tooth Demineralization

Tooth demineralization is the process of gradually removing minerals from the tooth enamel.  In other words, it is the erosion of tooth enamel. The tooth enamel is made up a coating of various minerals, of which the main one is calcium phosphate. Tooth enamel can become soft when it is substantially demineralized, thus allowing oral bacteria to penetrate deeper into the tooth, eventually causing cavities to form. When there is a cavity, the dentin layer of the tooth is exposed and if nothing is done and further decay will eventually exposed the soft pulp and nerve of the tooth causing pain.
