I'm in my 30s and i have almost 15 cavities. Half filled buyt just diagnosed w 4 more.

One crown but no other dental work w healthy gums.

I ask because i feel like i have SO MANY! And I could not find an "average" online.

I remember when i used to have only ONE and it was such a source of pride for me!!

*sigh*

Three. Two were filled when I was around 10 years old. The third was fixed this past year (over 40 years later).

I have also had extensive dental work as a result of a car accident that "jarred" my jawbone and teeth, but no amount of preventative care or healthy oral hygiene habits would have prevented the need for that work. The cavities came because the teeth had to be covered with veneers, and eventually the veneers came loose, and bacteria got between the veneers and the teeth, and then boom - time for a bridge. But it took around 15 years from the time I got the veneers til I needed the bridge.

If you count the teeth that decayed or were otherwise compromised as a result of the car accident, it'd be 12.

They want to see if they fall into the norm.
