There are a few things in our lives that we are told over and very again from a very young age. One of those is “make sure to brush your teeth or you’ll get a cavity!” Being a girl that was extremely afraid of the dentist I took this to heart pretty quickly. Half the time though it still seemed that I would have at least one cavity if not more – no matter how good I brushed and flossed. I was so frustrated. It got me to thinking… does brushing your teeth really prevent cavities? What do you think?
