3 Ways To Keep Your Mouth Happy!

Alexandria Teeth Bleaching

At The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria our objective is to help every patient who comes in for an appointment to have the best possible oral health. This post focuses on something that doesn’t get as much attention as cavities or cosmetic dentistry: our sense of taste.

A happy mouth is not only a healthy mouth but also a mouth that can enjoy the flavors of all types of foods. Healthy oral habits benefit our taste buds as well as our smiles. Here are some recommendations to help you better enjoy all the flavors and textures that can make each meal a delight.

  • Treat dry mouth. Dry mouth can create a loss of taste sensitivity, so it should be treated quickly by your dentist. Adequate saliva is also necessary for avoiding decay and gum disease.
  • Steer clear of salt- and fat-heavy processed food with artificial flavors. They will quickly desensitize you to more subtle, healthy flavors.
  • Don’t smoke! Cigarettes are responsible for many serious health problems, but another effect is that smoke dulls your sense of taste. Olfactory nerves can even be permanently damaged.

At The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria we offer comprehensive dental services, from dental implants to family dentistry, and much more. Find out why people from xxx trust us with their dental health! Schedule a checkup today!
