  • Decay cannot tranfer from one tooth to another via roots as each tooth is in its own socket and their is no communication between one socket or other. If the wall separating the two sockets resorbs then infection can travel to other socket. In case of baby teeth if they become infected then this infection can cause the damage to the tooth bud of the permanent tooth.
