1. Lock yourself in a closet.
2. Sew your mouth shut.
3. Wear a shock collar that’s sensitive to sugar particles.
At Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry, we understand how hard it is to avoid sweets altogether at Halloween and other sugar-filled holidays. We encourage both unfettered joy and healthy living for all of our Alexandria patients.
Moderation in candy intake can help with the prevention of dental caries, but so can consistent brushing and flossing, and regular cleanings and check-ups at your Mt. Vernon family dentist. Keeping the mouth clean and being meticulous are strong indicators for a happy mouth.
We’re not here to tell our Alexandria and Mt. Vernon patients to avoid sugar altogether. We’re not even here to tell you just to sneak a little. Eat as much as your child will let you; just be sure to brush thoroughly – same as any other time of year. Keep in mind that eating a candy bar and then brushing is better than sucking on a lollipop for half an hour.
When it comes to caring for Alexandria, Virginia’s teeth and cosmetic dentistry needs, Drs. Geren and Mady work tirelessly to make quality sedation dentistry, teeth whitening, and Invisalign available to this entire Virginia community. Services such as dental crowns and dental implants really set us apart from the competition. If we can help you with cosmetic dentistry or porcelain veneers, then we’ve done our job!
