Cavities

A year ago I had only 2 cavities and I just went to the dentist and I have a cavity on almost every tooth. I haven't changed my brushing habit at all and have always had great teeth, but I only brush my teeth once a day and don't floss much. Does anyone know how this could happen? or is it simply just my diet and lack of brushing?

Thank you for responding!
They are mostly in-between my teeth.
I was just curious if anyone knew why all of the sudden I would have soooo many cavities.

IT could be a number of things, but the main thing would be not flossing. Most cavities occur in-between the teeth. When only brushing and not flossing you are leaving the bacteria behind. However with out seeing any radiographs or where the cavities are located I can not tell you why this has happened.
