Eating too much sugar has long been to blame for getting cavities. Actually, it’s not the amount of sugar you have, but how long it remains in your mouth. The longer the sugar is there, the more acid it will produce. That acid is what erodes tooth enamel.

Drinking fluoridated water instead of soda will be beneficial in preventing cavities. Aurora dentists know that even sugar free soft drinks contain acid.

Aurora dentists maintain that you can counterbalance the acids that you do take in by eating vegetables that are rich in fiber.
