Wouldn't my teeth hurt if I had an issue, such as a cavity?
Many people think they only need to go to a dentist if they are in pain or have some sort of problem. Unfortunately waiting until you are in pain might mean fixing the problem is more complicated and more expensive. Many times cavities and other dental problems are not painful until they have progressed causing additional issues. It is best to come in for bi-annual exams and cleanings to address and treat any problems early before they become worse and more expensive.
