Just last month, one day I felt my tooth was painful. I thought I had a wisdom tooth growing out from the gum. But after I checked, it was just a mouth ulcer near the gum. I was nearly visited a dentist,but luckily not,my money would wasted if I visited a dentist. However, I think it's time for me to visit a dentist. It had been one year I did not visit a dentist, I should go to have a check up for my teeth. But sometimes I feel scare in case the dentist want to do some treatments on my teeth. It's painful. How about you? How often do you visit a dentist? Do you scare to visit a dentist? Do share,thanks.

hello yenwie.I nearly visit my dentist once a year.I always forget to do it because I will tell myself to do it the first night but forget it the second day's morning.But luckily my teeth are still very good.Maybe it is because I wash them carefully everyday.Hahaha...

Once a year -or every six montsh to say it the right way. It is an insurance thing. if I donĀ“t do it every six months, the insurance would pay for teeth operations.

I used to hardly visit the dentist, but now I do. I still don't want to go, but I know that it is for the best. It is better to keep up with your teeth now for you will have less problems with them in the future. I am still scared, but I have gotten many fillings and a root canal. Surprisingly, it really isn't that bad. You get anisthetics and you just have to relax. It's easier said than done but it really is for the best.

Last February this year. My tooth ached a lot so that's why I decided to visit a dentist. It was about a year since I last visited a dentist for the same cause.

Hmmmp... at least once a year to have my cleaning or check up. Got no time for it right now but I'm planning to visit next month.
