hi,its based on need,it may be twice in a year or no necessity upto 2 years also.but atleast going to visit dentist once in a year is the best.because the dental diseases are best way to attack all other diseases.

I haven't been to the dentist in years. I have no insurance, and no good income. I could never afford it. The instant I have insurance, I do plan on going though. I'm very peculiar about my teeth though. I'm constantly checking for possible cavities and such. I have such a big fear of needles that I want to avoid any need for them. The only cavity I've ever had I found, the dentist told me I was wrong, but an xray prooved me right. It was such a shallow cavity I was able to get it drilled and filled without anything to numb it.

I hate to go to the dentist. I only go when I have a tooth ache. I know that is not the way it should be done but what can I say "I hate the dentist". My husband, on the other hand, goes every 6 months. He has his teeth cleaned when he is supposed to and just a real trooper. But you know what, he does not have any less cavities than I do. So why should I go when i dont need to. I can use that money for something fun not painful.

NO I don't even though I should. They are kind of expensive so I only go when I have to. My kids always go for there's. I actually just made a dentist appointment to have a root canal and I am terrified, which is another reason I hardly go.
