I’ve been fortunate to only have had less than five cavities my entire life, none of which necessitated anything beyond a filling. No root canals, no nothing. Well, I did have to have a wisdom tooth extracted, but that’s it. Practicing good dental hygiene is imperative unless you want a mouth full of tree stumps. Brush your teeth, floss, use mouthwash, don’t drink/eat a lot of sugary foods, don’t make it a habit of chewing on wooden sticks or cracking jawbreakers……stuff like that. All of my followers are very intelligent people, so I know that’s all information you’re already well aware of, but still — a little refresher never hurts.
