# Is [in]frequency countable or uncountable?

Going to the dentist once a year is not enough

Now, which one would describe `once a year` better, `too few` or `too little`?

## Update

I know the expression is complete, but it was just an example to ask a more general question:

If I wanted to refer to a frequency (once a year), should I consider that as countable or uncountable?

• I think the missing word is 'times'. >Going to the dentist once a year is not enough [times] times for what is unanswered tho..

• @kztd My challenge is not to change the example, is to refer to "once a year". In my example, is "once a year", beside "not enough", "too few" or "too little" or neither? Maybe "too few times"? Commented Sep 15, 2021 at 17:27
• Going to the dentist once a year is too low a frequency (NOT 'too low of a frequency'). Going three times a day is probably too high a frequency. Commented Sep 15, 2021 at 18:04
• "Few" refers to a number. "Little" refers to a quantity. "Once a year" is neither -- it's a frequency.

Neither is needed in that sentence. "Not enough" is complete as it is, though it could be "not often enough".
You could say that "once a year is too little", with this meaning:
Merriam-Webster little
• By `not needed`, do you mean they don't work? Commented Sep 15, 2021 at 17:13
