Are you visiting your dentist enough?

Visiting your participating, Quality Assured dentist regularly is critical if you wish to reap the benefits associated with strong oral health and wellness.

It is recommended that you visit your dentist twice per year. If you are at increased risk for tooth decay and/or poor dental hygiene, ask your dentist if more frequent visits are necessary.

Even if you don’t have major oral health issues, visiting your dentist twice a year will reap many health benefits. Regular dental visits help you maintain a cavity-free mouth, and contribute to lifelong dental health. They allow your dentist to fully examine your mouth, ensuring that small problems are discovered and corrected before they turn into more serious health issues.

And remember to keep your dental appointments with your dentist. This will help reduce dental emergencies, more time in the dental chair, and most importantly, lower dental expenses.
