The right brushing technique is more important than the frequency of the brushing.... you do have good oral hygiene practices as you explained but nonetheless some studies have also linked a genetic predisposition to dental cavities and gum diseases.... all you need to do is get the cavities that have already occurred treated adequately before they progress further and cause major symptoms to you..... and also go for a regular 6 month checkup to prevent further cavities in the future.... your dentist can also guide you about the best brushing technique so that cavities can be avoided in the future..... Regards.....

Overbrushing is also bad in long run... it abrades your teeth. A visit for routine check up and cleaning should suffice every 6 months Remember the saying "too much care killed the cat" Regarding other people- different oral conditions exist so you cannot compare decay rates on just mere observation

Unfortunately the number of times you brush isn't enough. The technique of brushing is important. Visit your dentist to make sure your brushing technique is proper Also, some mouthwashes tend to have alcohol, whch dry out the mouth, so while they provide temporary freshness, they might cause cavities in the long run. Make sure you get routinely 6-12 monthly cleanings from your dentist to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy. Professional care is required to maintain healthy teeth. And lastly, unfortunately some genetic pattern in teeth does play a role. Also, the quality of your saliva and food you eat. There isn't much you can do about these except a regular maintenance schedule on your part. Don't compare your teeth to others, they may be having other problems which you are spared of.
