Cavities are permanently damaged areas in the hard surface of your teeth that develop into tiny openings or holes. Cavities, also called tooth decay or caries, are caused by a combination of factors, including bacteria in your mouth, frequent snacking, sipping sugary drinks and not cleaning your teeth well.
Diet – When it comes to getting cavities, it’s not only the amount of sugar you eat and drink, but the frequency as well. If you sip, graze or snack on anything sweet throughout the day, your chance of getting cavities increases by quite a bit.
Dry Mouth – Saliva is very important because it washes away plaque and bacteria and also neutralizes the acids that cause tooth decay. When you have dry mouth, your risk of decay goes up a lot.
