    I was meant to go to the dentist about 8 months ago. I really should register with one in the UK as my jaw is starting to hurt like hell & I keep waking up with a mouthful of blood. Graphic yes. But my last dentist scared the **** out of me, saying I would need an operation on my jaw & braces for about 4 years.

    Every 6 months.

    I hate going but my parents make me. I'll thank them later - if you lose/don't have a dentist now you're pretty much ****ed up.

    I don't really mind it though. I've never had to have any fillings.

    I only go when I have a problem. I know how to brush my teeth so I see no reason to.

    I go every 6 months, for a checkup and a scale and polish - it's either that or give up the black coffee. I didn't go for 5 years though whilst I was a student, but managed to get away with it (I've still never had a filling). The practice I was at prior to then booted all the NHS patients out at 18 and then tried to flog them Denplan, like the others in the area, so I had to take my chances until I had a job. But then when I did get a job, I moved to somewhere where an NHS dentist was taking on patients, so I'm back to having NHS treatment again.

    This thread has reminded me I needed to book a check-up. I usually go every 6 months or so, but haven't been for nearly a year as I was meant to go in September, but the dentist was ill and since then I have been too lazy/not able to book another appointment. I am going at the end of April: hopefully there shouldn't be any problems!
