Yes, most of us are almost always guilty of this one. The only time that we are reminded that we need to see our friendly dentist is when the pain starts to bother us. We figure out then that it is time to search for a nearby dentist's office and hopefully they will be able to magically make the pain go away.

In most cases, they can indeed help to do this but then there are times that in order to get rid of the nagging pain we have to either endure more pain or make multiple visits to our dentist. What is it that they often say? No pain, no gain? Well, no truer words could be spoken here. The good thing about this is that more often than not, we can indeed avoid the pain and how do we do this? Simple! By making regular visits to our friendly dentist's office.

Many kids have the false belief that dentists are scary people but in actuality they are not. As for us adults? Who really knows why we are so fearful of our friendly dentist. Maybe we are afraid of the potential pain? Or we feel so helpless as we sit in the chair at the mercy of the dentist?
