  My 6 and 8 yr olds each have several small cavities between  baby teeth. I am truly freaking out about this. I know all about WAP and cell salts etc. I have read this stuff and we do pretty good with diet, FCLO etc.


I have an awful chronic illness which stems from leaky gut and I am horrified that my kids could be brewing inbalances.


Here's my question-Is it ever possible that small cavities are ever due to bad hygiene only? This has been a horrible year and we have been really slack in overseeing the brushing and flossing plus they have had a lot of natural fruit leathers fruit snacks etc.


TIA- I am distraught and would love input.
