Oh Yeah! Baby


A nonspecific term for bad or diseased teeth; caries.

Whilst this term fills a lexical void, it got a mere 88 hits on 04.05.2015, primarily in secondary or non-English language literature. The plain English, bad teeth, got 575,000 hits. Whilst cacodontia fills a lexical void, it is not used in the working medical parlance and should be retired.
