In brief: If you're BREATHING-

That's a good enough reason to see a dentist.
You should be seeing your dentist once a year, as a minimum, for a routine oral cancer screening. If your teeth are normal, a properly trained general dentist will enlist the services of a local psychologist to help with your non-dental issues that may affect your self-image. If your concerns are justified, your dentist can help you with them.

In brief: Yes.

You should see a dentist regularly.
You save yourself much money and pain by performing routine checkups with your dentist. We all get plaque on our teeth. If we do not remove that plaque, it will harden and form something called calculus. Calculus cannot be removed by toothbrush or floss. It is removed by a dental professional. If left untreated you can lose your bone and teeth.
