Tooth Decay

Dentistry Pasadena Texas:


Tooth Decay / Cavities

Tooth Decay is still a major problem in America. Dental bacteria, sugar and acid are responsible for creating holes in teeth. Bacteria in your mouth produce acid that will destroy enamel. It takes a pH of 4 or less to dissolve tooth enamel. Diet Coke (pH 3.1) Coke (pH 2.4), Gatorade (pH 2.9), and Pepsi (pH 2.5) are all acidic enough to dissolve teeth.

Dr. Nugent can repair holes in your teeth with cosmetic white fillings or white porcelain crowns.



Dr. Nugent’s Family Dental Office is located at 3421 Burke Rd Ste A, Pasadena Texas 77504.
