Yes... We have 6 kids, 5 with teeth LOL

The twins (15) have great teeth. As they've gotten older they've developed poor habits and would prefer to have soda, Gatorade or juice over water but we're working on that! Any chance they have to eat sugary treats they do! Last week one had a single cavity filled, his one and only. And the other had 4!! Ack!!

Next in line is #3 who's 10. He started having cavities in preschool despite brushing and having "great" teeth with gaps. He's had probably 8 crowns now? All baby teeth thankfully! But I strongly believe he was predisposed genetically to having poor teeth.

#4 & #5 (6 & 8yrs) had the exact same tooth with a cavity and both needed a crown. Also baby teeth.

So yes, out of the 5 of them only 1 has needed extensive dental work.

Re: Dental issues

My daughter is 20, and never had a single cavity. She ate candy, drank soda, didn't brush her teeth twice a day...yet, never got cavities.

She had plenty of other issues, so I guess we were spared cavities...but, for some reason, her teeth are strong.
