    Starchy stuff is worse than sweet stuff because it sticks to your teeth better.

    They fluoridate the public water around here and those who drink well water are given fluoride supplements to prevent cavities.
    Can you correlate the increase in cavities with a move to a new area?

    I remember right after I got my braces off I needed 7 fillings.... I don't understand it, how does that happen? O_O I brush my teeth several times a day, don't drink soda, don't eat anything sweet, etc. But that was a few years ago.... Now I've had a mountain dew everyday for the past three or four weeks and am going to the dentist in a few days... I'm scared O_O

    Don't forget that starches are broken down into simple sugars by the saliva. You don't have to eat "sweets" to get sugar into your system (or onto your teeth).
