My mother was a big fan of Listerine. Now I read that cavities are caused by bacteria. Germs….they were the culprit for the cavities suffered by many of my friends. I was lucky, I never had any until I became an adult. I kissed my boyfriend…next thing you know, I have a cavity in college. Who knew? My mom! She told me cavities are contagious. Somehow she knew.
I don’t think Listerine is necessarily the answer, but certainly seeing your dentist and keeping an eye on plaque build up cannot hurt.
