Every time I go to the doctor, he keeps reminding me of the oral hygiene that should be maintained.
I follow all this: I brush twice, floss, mouthwash every day and still I had problems. Last time I went with a cavity problem. I had to do composite resin filling.

4. Leafy veggies are for the overall health and nutrients in them can prevent gum disease.
I have heard a totlly contrasting information on tooth cavities by eating apples or any sweet fruits and milk products. Can anyone clarify this?
