This may disappoint those with dental phobia, but unless you’ve got a dental degree and a really fancy mirror, you should go to a dentist at least once a year.

Getting your teeth checked and cleaned once or twice each year cuts down on stubborn plaque and gives your dentist a better chance of catching trouble spots early on.
