I've noticed that so many things are genetic. My wife is much more fastidious than me as a brusher, flosser, and getting her cleanings. She always has problems (multiple cavities, etc). Where as I haven't had a cavity in more than 10 years.

We have a bunch of kids and some of them seem to take after her (have a lot of problems) and some after me (relatively problem free).

I believe the 6 month cleaning interval was just the average that seemed to work OK. Some will need it more frequently and others won't notice a difference with annual cleanings.
