Most Important thing to prevent cavities Is to Limit No. Of Intakes Per Day An Intake is anything apart from water taken at one go For eg .. you have 6 cups of coffee / tea during the day  then if you have all 6 in one go then that is considered to be 1 intake but if you have 1 after the other with intervals during the day they will be 6 different intakes So 6 different times carbohydrates were broken down and acid was produced which increases your chances to get cavities

Tooth decay can be familial which is exacerbated by local factors. I would suggest maintaining your diet, cutting down on cola, brush and floss twice a day, and go for regular dental appointments. Also don't worry about it. Take care and just be vigilant not worried.
