3 Ways To Keep Your Mouth Happy!

Alexandria Teeth Whitening

Drs. Geren & Mady are experienced dentists here in Alexandria. At Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry, we enjoy helping patients have optimum oral health. Today’s post focuses on something mouth-related 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. And it turns out, healthy oral habits benefit our taste buds. Here are some tips to help you better enjoy all the flavors and textures that can make each meal a delight.

1) Treat dry mouth. Dry mouth can create a loss of taste sensitivity, so it should be treated quickly by your dentist. A normal saliva level is also necessary for preventing cavities and gum disease.

2) Avoid processed foods with fake flavors and too much sugar and salt. They will quickly desensitize you to more subtle, healthy flavors.

3) Don’t smoke! Cigarettes are deadly for a multitude of reasons, but many individuals don’t realize that their sense of taste is dulled while they smoke. Olfactory nerves can even be damaged permanently.

Thank you so much for visiting our blog. Along with dental health and a keen sense of taste, we want our patients to have the beautiful smile they have always desired. If you have any questions regarding cosmetic dentistry such as smile makeovers, dental implants or teeth whitening, please contact us. We are located at 8101 Hinson Farm Rd Ste 114 in Alexandria.
