Susceptible Sites

Dental caries are more likely to occur at stagnation sites between teeth or in the fissures of molar teeth. Plaque will accumulate in these sites, where it is less likely to be disturbed by tooth brushing. At the same time, the protective buffering of saliva and the remi-neralization that arises from its mineral content are attenuated by the inaccessibility of such sites, while food debris is retained for longer periods. The reduction of salivary flow during sleep makes food debris remaining in these sites at night particularly damaging to the teeth.
