Every 6 months for prophylaxis. Thank you Dr. Paul Getto, your work has stood the test of time and I've still got all my teeth(except the four wisdom teeth).

I go, when I can afford it. my "every 6 month cleanings" are more like every 8 or 10 month cleanings. luckily I have pretty good teeth, thanks to good regular dental care when I was a kid because my folks HAD dental Ins.

Those old fillings sure do last a long time - with one small exception, all of my fillings were put in before I was 20. I'm now 55 years old, and they are all still in fine condition. Not a single one has ever had to be redone.

And yes, I do go to the dentist every 6 months.

We went to Dr. James Hardy to get all our mercury fillings taken out and replaced. Leaving them in is poisonous to your health.

How can anyone NOT visit a dentist? I see people with rotting teeth and I wonder how dumb they must be. It's no secret that teeth are not particularly hard to care for, and yet some poor white trash is still too dumb to brush and floss regularly.

Yes, she lives down the street, we visit all the time.

Yep. And I've got $3000 in work just in the last 3 years to prove it. Crowns are stupid expensive.

Mom? Is that you nagging me again? Geesh. Amazing that you are now doing that thru the JLW polls...

Yup, twice a year, going to the dentist prevents heart disease. A cople hundred dollars a year is cheap seeing it could save your life!~

Twice per year. Someday I'd like to see the yacht I've paid for.

If doctors charged like dentists I'd be dead.

Our insurance coverage isn't great. It is expensive and covers very minimal. Who can afford it? Costs less to purchase toothpaste and new brushes every month or so.

Ain't got no use for dentists nor proctologists.
