I only learned this well in my sixth decade after having had radiation and lost part of my salivary glands seven implants later. It is important to have enough cavity-fighting saliva   in your mouth at all times. The surfaces of our teeth constantly go through cycles of breakdown and repair.

If the acid damage continues, the surface of the tooth collapses, and a cavity results.  This damage typically receives traditional surgical repair, such as a filling. Our teeth and saliva have a naturally occurring maintenance system, but the fermentable carbohydrates (sugars) of a typical diet combined with acid-producing oral bacteria overwhelm our mouth’s natural repair capability, and dental decay is often the result.
