There are few better ways to exude health and confidence than with a bright, healthy set of teeth and gums. Doing your part at home with twice daily brushing and flossing is only half of the prevention puzzle, however. Choosing a dentist in Colorado Springs that offers free dental cleanings and exams twice a year sets you up for optimal dental health.

Here’s why you should visit the dentist twice a year instead of once.

Helps Prevents Tooth Decay

Dental plaque and gum disease form quickly, leaving you vulnerable to tooth decay and periodontal distress. When your dental hygienist removes plaque buildup in hard-to-reach places, tartar doesn’t have a chance to form. Not only that, but bacteria in your mouth can travel in your bloodstream, putting you at increased risk for heart disease.

Catches Gum Disease Early

Plaque at the gum line may be easy to miss without diligent brushing and flossing. Stress, family history, and certain medical conditions can also put you at higher risk for gum disease.

Stops Stains and Discolorations

Discolored teeth can be a sign of a problem, but twice-yearly dental exams can identify any issues early. Plus, you can take advantage of teeth whitening before yellowed or stained teeth darken.

Protects High-Risk Patients

Certain people are more susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay. If you smoke, are pregnant, diabetic, have certain medical conditions, or already have gum disease, you should always visit the dentist twice a year.

Lowers Risk for Oral Cancer

Twice-a-year oral cancer screenings ensure that your dentist can identify disease before it progresses.

Gives You Confidence

Visiting the dentist regularly helps you relax and feel good about your dental health instead of worrying about underlying issues.
