For A Healthier Smile, Stop Doing This

Alexandria friendly family dentist

At the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, we want all of our patients to have beautiful smiles with healthy teeth and gums. It takes more than brushing, flossing, and regular checkups to achieve this. There are things you can do, and not do, to help yourself.

We recommend you stop doing this:

Chewing sugared gum all day.
Cavities, a sore jaw, or weakened bridgework may result. If you must chew, select gum with Xylitol.

Drinking soda and energy drinks.
These sugary, acidic beverages are extremely efficient at damaging enamel.

Chewing ice or hard candy.
Your enamel is strong, but so are ice and hard candy. Head-to-head, they sometimes win, resulting in a broken tooth.

Skipping flossing.
Maybe you think brushing is enough. Following brushing with a conscientious flossing job removes particles of food and plaque between teeth.

Using a firm bristled toothbrush.
A soft bristled brush is the most appropriate tool for the job. Save your firm brush for cleaning the grout around your bathtub.

Delaying dental checkups.
Don’t wait until you feel pain. Call us to book a comprehensive exam and cleaning/

At the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, we keep your teeth and gums healthy with a range of general dentistry procedures, and improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appontment today!
