    You didn't ask the dentist?

    Brush twice daily, floss, use mouthwash and avoid sugary and acidic food.

    Hiya, I'm 18 and have already had 4 fillings (quite small) The whole time they never explained why, but last time he said it is because I have sensitive teeth and didn't have enough calcium when my teeth were forming. They explained it more technically but your teeth are more sensitive to acidic conditions (well for me anyway) so.. sugar. I now use a fluoride mouthwash which is highly recommended to prevent the sugar decay on sensitive (but all) teeth

    vitamin k2 supplement

    vitamin d - one drop on the wrist

    vitamin a - 3 or 4 drops on the wrist too . 4 times the amount of D for balance

    that will balance it out.

    eat calcium rich foods

    eat sourdough bread - this removes the phytic acid. make sure it is fermented for 72- 96 hours.

    Phytic acid causes tooth decay. not sugar
