At Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry in Alexandria, we want our patients to have perfect smiles and great oral health. A tall order? Maybe, but it’s one that we can fill.
Healthy oral habits benefit our our smiles, and our smiles influence the people around us. Here are a few ways to benefit your oral health.
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) Stay fluoridated. Drink water that is fluoridated, and use a fluoride toothpaste when you brush your teeth.
3) Don’t smoke! Cigarettes are bad for a host of reasons. Tobacco stains your teeth, and puts you at risk of oral cancer.
Invisalign clear braces can subtly straighten your teeth. They are so subtle, in fact, that people just a few feet away may not realize you’re wearing them.
At the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, perfect smiles are our business. Call today to schedule a consultation or an appointment.
