My first appeared in my middle 60s. The second is with me now.

I have had more cavities than I have teeth.
Starting in my pre-teens.

I only had 1 cavity for the first 33 years of my life, but then I had some health issues and my dental health seemed to tank with it, so I ended up with several at once. Hopefully that won’t happen again, I have been 3 years without another, so maybe that’s a good sign.

Not for me. I’ve only had one filling, on a baby tooth, but I believe I do have a couple minor cavities that have never needed filling so far, though they may need it some day.

Nope, so far I’ve had two. Haven’t been to the dentist in a long while, so I’m sure I have more by now.

I’ve only had a couple: but that still means I can’t say “without any”. My Mom lived to be 83 & NEVER had a cavity. She credited it to drinking pure, healthy well water all her life!!! She never drank soda, opting to only drink water & milk.

Yes. So far, so good.

I have one cavity from each pregnancy. Apparently lack of sleep and general exhaustion with a newborn make your dental habits go to shit.

I think I may have had one cavity when I was 12, haven’t had any since then. Which is strange because there have been times where I don’t have the energy to brush my teeth, due to my past anxiety and depression.

I have a friend who brushes his teeth twice a day and still gets cavities

I think my grandmother did. Seems there was a high amount of natural fluoride in the water where she grew up.

I had lots of cavities as a kid. But Mom saw to it that we practiced good oral hygiene so I guess I was just pre-disposed to cavities. Haven’t had a filling in decades now, though.
