Your suppose to go every 6 months to a year do you actually do it? How long ago was it since you went to the dentists?

  • For the past 2 years I've gone every 6 months...before that it was 7 years since I saw a dentist. I had no dental insurance for a long time. Thankfully we have it now so cleanings are free. I just wish it was more affordable to have my wisdom teeth extracted.

  • I love going to the dentist, my teeth are always so clean afterward. That was when I had insurance though....now I just make sure to brush, floss and use Listerine afterward every time...

    I'm due for a cleaning this month, but not sure I can afford it.

  • No, I have a baby here. I barely can manage to keep him quiet for me to get a check up at the doctor.

  • Yep, every 6 months. I make sure my husband goes too, he has way more issues than I do and we don't need for them to get worse by not getting regular cleanings. My kids also go every 6 months.

  • Yes, every 6 months. I have some dental insurance but not a lot of coverage, but if the teeth are bad then you are sick all over, and bad teeth can lead to some nasty complications.
