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 🙂
