Tooth decay (dental caries) is damage to a tooth that can happen when decay-causing bacteria in your mouth make acids that attack the tooth’s surface, or enamel.

Are egg shells made of the same material as teeth?
Egg shells are made of calcium carbonate – a hard mineral that is similar to calcium phosphate, the substance our teeth are made of. Acids react with calcium carbonate, breaking it apart into calcium (which is carried off in the water) and carbon dioxide gas.
