You could try Dr Christophers tooth and gum powder. It’s supposed to heal cavities and has awesome reviews.

Thanks for asking such a great question. It’s really good that you brush your teeth at least three times a day, that’s definitely the way to keep cavities at bay.What might be worth looking into is how you brush your teeth and what with? There are a few simple rules:

  • Brush your teeth 20 min after eating, this gives your teeth time to recover a little from the acid attack.
  • Always brush with a fluoride containing toothpaste.
  • Brush for at least 2 min.
  • Clean in between your teeth at least once a day with an incidental brush or floss
  • rinse in between brushing, after meals particularly, with A fluoride containing mouthwash.

This would also be a great question to ask your dentist when you visit… Visiting the dentist will also help you understand why you continue to get cavities, they may be able to spot possible biological factors involved and also advise on your dental health care routine. Hope that helps đŸ™‚

rushing is a good habit or it can damage our gums and teeth if do not understand how to brush.
Brushing teeth is important and every time we brush we have to take care of our teeth and gums.
Most of us like to brush our teeth in the morning and many people have a habit to do the same in the night. But this practice is not particularly essential for maintaining a healthy mouth.
Even there can be some bad habits which you are performing on a regular basis, some of which you suppose they are favorable.
In order to get the cleanest mouth around, there is a need to stop performing those bad habits.
At the same brushing habit which is a very important part of our daily routine can turn out to be a habit which can damage your gums and teeth.
