I had picture perfect teeth up till 2 years ago. I don’t know what’s going on with my body.
I eat healthy (90% of the time)
Brush 3 times a day. Floss. Limit sugars.
And for some reason every 6 months I go to the dentist and told I’m getting a new cavity.
It’s really frustrating.

I read somewhere a while back that upwards of 70% of all dental work is unnecessary.

If your dentist is recommending unnecessary dental work you should probably find a new dentist. The one I go to is really good. She does everything she can to not drill a tooth. She'll show me the x-rays and go over them. When I first went to visit her office she showed me the xrays, showed me pictures, and said you have x amount of cavities, and you should get a root canal done on one tooth. Got them all done. Got that done, got em crowned, and bam done. Haven't had an issue since. No "new" cavities. Just a cleaning and exam every few months.
I brush my teeth one or two times a day, floss, use a water pik, and then mouth wash.
If you don't take care of your teeth and gums and only go to the dentist once a decade don't be surprised when your # is all #ed up
