    Essentially, you gain a cavity as a result of acid buildup on the surface of your tooth (from bacteria as a result of food debris) . The acid wears down the enamel and gives a breeding ground for bacterial infection.

    The bacteria that causes cavities can "eat" into the surface of the tooth and it becomes a bacteria filled hole, or cavity.
