Susceptibility To Dental Cavities

What Causes Frequent Dental Cavities?

Frequent dental cavities can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • see your health summarized and in detail
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)
  • learn what you should be doing right now

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose frequent dental cavities, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "frequent dental cavities" as a symptom.  For example, phosphorus deficiency.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
low energy/stamina
weak appetite
history of broken bones
being easily irritated
numb/burning/tingling extremities
severe diffuse bone pain
afternoon coffee/sugar craving
minor joint pain/swelling/stiffness
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of frequent dental cavities.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Mouth/Oral Symptoms section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about susceptibility to dental cavities:
How often do you get dental cavities?
Possible responses:
→ Not applicable / don't know
→ I have none at all - perfect teeth
→ None in the past 5 years
→ 1 or 2 in the past 5 years
→ 3 or more in the past 5 years
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate not having any cavities, low susceptibility to cavities, moderate susceptibility to cavities or high susceptibility to cavities, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Phosphorus Deficiency.  Phosphorus is just as important for healthy teeth as calcium.  Without sufficient phosphorus, your body can not properly utilize the calcium that you consume.
