Has it been awhile since you’ve been to the dentist? Have you ever wondered if you have cavities in your teeth or wanted to know why you seem to get so many cavities while other people hardly get any?

Thanks to the decades of research done by scientists around the world, new methods have been developed which can help determine how likely a person may be to develop cavities. Even though the only way to know for sure whether or not you have them or are at high risk for getting them is to be professionally evaluated by your dentist, certain risk factors have been determined which may help point you toward what your risk level is!

The questions used to determine your risk are based on lifestyle choices, dental history, and even genetic predisposition. There is a wide range of factors that combine to form your unique oral environment and these factors can be quantified to form an approximate risk level for you.
