The importance of brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day is something we stress to all of our patients, at The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria. Coupled with twice-a-year checkups and cleanings, it’s the best way to maintain healthy teeth and gums, and your beautiful smile.
A good dental hygiene routine, something you do every single day without fail, is essential to your dental health. It’s related to your overall health, too.
A cavity will not fix itself. If it’s ignored too long it can become infected, leading to an abcess. This can be very painful, and may even require a root canal in order to save the tooth.
That can be prevented with daily brushing and regular checkups at The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria. We offer complete family and cosmetic dentistry, and much more. Schedule a checkup with us today!
