Q.

Dentist checkups

How often should one go to a dentist? The last time I went was about 1997 (still a teenager), but during the period between that and now, I have never had toothache, pains, etc or anything wrong. People tend to comment on how white my teeth are. I am now 29 and I still have my wisdom teeth. Will that cause a problem?

dental visits should ideally be done every 6 months.
the wisdom teeth should not cause a problem .
White teeth are not a sign of healthy teeth- you need to ensure the gums,bone and all surfaces of the teeth are hea.thy. See a dentist for a full check up
