Why Do You Need to See Your Dentist Twice a Year?, Anchorage, Alaska

Scheduling routine visits with your dentist is extremely important to your oral health. That’s why the family dentistry professionals at Family First Dentistry in Anchorage, Alaska, work with patients on a regular basis to ensure they maintain great hygiene and health.

If you haven’t been to the office lately, here are four reasons you should visit your dentist at least twice a year:

  • Keep Your Smile Healthy: Even if you’re vigilant about brushing twice a day and flossing, it’s important to see your dentist twice a year for routine checkups. A thorough examination of your teeth and a deep cleaning will help your dentist identify and fix any underlying issues that might not be visible to you in the mirror. Those routine checkups will keep your smile healthy for years to come.
  • Catch Issues Early: When you have two visits a year scheduled with your dentist, you’ll be able to catch any oral health issues early. This will minimize pain, discomfort, and long visits to your dentist. Plus, you’ll be able to save money in the long run by avoiding costly dental procedures.
  • Family DentistryImprove Confidence: Your smile is an important part of your presentation to the outside world. You can achieve a beautiful, healthy smile by having routine visits with your dentist—you may want to also consider teeth whitening procedures to help improve your overall confidence and self-esteem.
  • Prevent Tooth Loss: As we age, it’s especially important to continue to visit a family dentistry practice on a regular basis. Routine checkups ensure your teeth and gums are healthy, and your dentist will help you prevent tooth loss and enamel wear.

If you live near Anchorage and are looking for a family dentistry practice that specializes in a wide range of oral health services—from dental checkups and teeth whitening to implants and crowns—call Family First Dentistry at (907) 562-2820 today.
