I'd have to pay for it myself (no dental as a grad student), and I hate going, so it's been 3 years since I've been to the dentist. If it was covered I'd still probably only go once a year though.
A lot of stink mouth in this thread. If you have proper insurance you should be going twice a year.
Your a retard.
Twice per year.
Agreed. Will you please stop trying to sell me Invisalign, though?
Gotta go to the dentist people. If you have insurance you might as well go twice a year. If not, go once a year and dont get x-rays and its not that expensive. Doesn't matter how much you floss and brush at home. You can't clean your teeth as well as the dental hygienist with the big tits. Tartar will start to build up around the base of your teeth and cause your gums to recede. Then say hello to gingivitis.
You're in college. The window of opportunity to drink and do drugs and take advantage of young girls is getting smaller by the day.
Ok, fine...I'll note that in your chart.
Well, I wish my dentist would note it on her chart. I've told her every time she's brought it up that I'm not interested and yet she still asks me at every visit. Dentists and eye doctors have become such pimps for their suppliers.
This is also the same woman who gave me a cupcake pop at my last visit to celebrate being named best dentist in the area by some local rag.
ITT: bunch of anti dentites.
I go every 6 months. But I could understand once a year if you don't have insurance . Any longer and you are just making dumb excuses that you will probably regret
For some reason my mom waiting until I was in high school to get me braces and my best friend was dating the orthodondist's assistant, who was also a stripper , so every time I sat in that chair I knew my friend had been going to town in that same chair after hours and it still haunts me to this day.
Ok...you changed my mind. I'm going to schedule an appointment when I get back into the office on Monday.
Last year I busted my face up pretty bad and broke a couple of teeth.
It had been 30 years since I had seen a dentist. The last visit is when I was in the Army - it was not pleasant.
The dentist commented that my teeth and gums were in great shape (other than the trauma) and my teeth were among the whitest he had seen for someone my age.
I brush twice a day, only occasionally floss. On the positive side I eat very clean and do not smoke or drink coffee/cola. More than anything I likely just am lucky enough to have inherited good dental genes.
I did go back for a cleaning a few months later and hope to begin a more regular regimen of dental care.
wtf is up with you guys who don't go to the dentist????? I think it's weird to go more than 2x a year, but not going for multiple years is gross. I could see with no insurance skipping a year or going less frequently, but for those people with insurance you're crazy not to go every 6 months.
So you're British? Sorry, brah.

This except I usually go about twice a year. I have a bar behind my lower front teeth to keep them in place where plaque can build up and it is hard to get to at home so I go to the dentist for it.
Your average person who has not had a lot of previous restorations would probably be fine going once a year for an exam/cleaning, and x-rays every other year, granted they properly brush twice a day and floss properly 2-3 x week. A lot of people are pretty lazy though, and if you have had a lot of previous work done, small problems can turn into bigger, more expensive, more painful problems pretty fast if not routinely monitored.

hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
I had a lot of work done when I was a kid by Dr. Haliburton. I think he thought if he went deep enough he could find oil.
Also of note... I had some work done by the infamous Dr. in Haslett who can't afford to buy pizza on his salary.

What's a dentist?
My dentist sold me on a waterpik. Better than flossing? Worse?
Every six months
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
He sounds like an expensive prostitute.

I had a pretty bad experience with my last dentist.
I haven't gone in 3.5 years, but that was because I haven't had any dental insurance. I now have it, and I will be making an appt soon. I always went every 6 months before, and I will continue to if I have the insurance.
Not a dentist....but I feel like it works better than flossing. Placebo? I don't know, but I feel like it does more.
went 18 years w/o going.
dentist refused to believe it had been that long when i fianlly went back, dent. thought it was a 1 year refresh.
I drink coke like a fish, chew tobacco, smoke cigars.
brush your teeth twice a day, floss, have good genes and you have no probs.
not one either but i waterpik daily. flossing sucks.
