hey guys! how often do you visit your dentist to check your teeth? i myself honestly do visits my dentist every year, or let me say once a year. because i have yearly cleaning. so far my teeth are healthy and no need to put some stuff into it. i am thankful that i dont suffer like tooth ache because of the tooth decay. do you do the same?

Hi dear, I don’t prefer to go to dentist. I never gone to them, no, yes – once, when I was a school boy, my mom want me to put clips to my teeth. I went to a local dentist and the same day he took the measurements and called me after few days. Whenever I go to him, we would say, come so &so day, I made 4-5 visits, but he never continue any further job. I stopped going and didn’t put the clips. Otherwise, I never gone to anybody as I don’t like it. As you said, all my teeth are intact and there is no issue so far. Also, most of the weekends, I do my own way of cleaning and I am really comfortable by doing myself. All my teethes are clean and neat, it is not a difficult job for me. I give upmost importance to be cleanliness especially, teeth. Thank-s

Hi Jade, Thanks for your comments. In fact and the truth is that I don't like to go to a dentist. I don't know why, I never visited for any purposes to a dentist. So far my teeth are in good condition and I prefer to well maintain all my teeth and that may be the reason why I never though of a dentist. Even my father's teeth were so beautiful and well in tact and he had the habit of maintain healthy teeth and I followed his way of doing. However, people who have dental issues should consult, as it create problems quite often. I am 30+ and I used to self check all my teeth if all are fine and not yet affected any problems. Thank-s

you better have some more vegetables that have calcium content. i suggest you eat apples twice a day, they can strengthen teeth , i have read about that because i am an article writer on health topics...

Hi. carrine. I go to the dentist every six months. This is twice in a year. I also go when I have a toothache or I when I need to get a tooth filling or an extraction done too.

Although our insurance covers for the any dental expenses, I can't seem to find the time to get to the dentists. The last time I had to go was about a year ago, when I suddenly had a toothache and I had to schedule an emergency appointment to get it fixed. I would like to go to regularly. If only I could remember to set the appointment.
