I think i read somewhere that 50% of your dental health is genetic, the other depends on your hygiene.I actually just got back from my cleaning. Hygienist asked about my cleaning routine, etc. Took x-rays. Dentist looked at my teeth. No cavities, no whatever, and to be fair. I've been pretty lax. I basically stopped flossing years ago, i'll brush once a day, but lightly, and rarely use mouth wash. Gums were 3mm and lower, very little build up below bottom retainer, etc. No issues were brought up. Maybe I should see a new dentist.
Although i like to brush my teeth twice daily with flouride toothpaste, i don't believe it's significantly has any benefit different than fluoride water.
