Hey, Cavities are caused by 4 things: 1. Carbohydrates 2. Bacteria 3. Tooth Surface 4. Time These 4 things in combination cause the cavity to form, and when you get one you should visit to your dentist and get it restored. Don't wait until it starst hurting. Thats about it !! Thanking you, Dr. Shoaib
