I’m due right about now, but I absolutely hate going to the dentist, it usually takes Mrs Squeaky to really kick my butt to get me to go.

On 4–23-1015 at 2:00p.m. No cavities! Gums good! I get my teeth cleaned every 6 months and dental exam.

Ten years ago.

Honest answer. I don’t have dental insurance. I brush and floss daily and I’ve only lost one molar this decade.

About 3 weeks ago. I get my teeth cleaned every six months.

Wednesday. First time in three years due to lack of insurance. Yay for Obamacare! I’m in MA, so I suppose it’s Romneycare, actually.

I used to go every six months. It’s been about three years now.

Like @jonsblond, I brush and floss daily. Every dentist I have been to said the same thing: If you are only going to do one thing to protect your teeth, floss. I haven’t had a cavity since the braces came off at the age of 14. My retainers from that time (almost 40 years ago…gad!) still fit.

At the slightest hint of a problem, I’d schedule an appt. And if I had dental insurance, I’d go back to having them cleaned every six months. It’s an enjoyable experience for me.
