@Stoffern here is a story for you: I am so careful about my teeth. I am rigorous with my brushing schedule, I floss, I have a fancy Sonicare. And yet: I need about 10k in dental work done. MY SPOUSE: hadn’t gone to the dentist in (no lie) 30(!!!) years. Only occasionally brushes. Needed two—TWO—visits *just* for de-scaling, and yet? ZERO CAVITIES.
