What Is Lurking Under Your Gumline?

Gum Disease Treatment Alexandria

Your overall dental health depends on healthy teeth and gums. Along with regular checkups at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, regular brushing and flossing helps keep everything in good shape.

You already know, of course, how to brush your teeth. But there are best practices that you may not be aware of. Bearing in mind that there is always room to improve, we offer up these tips:

  • Hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle with the bristle tips aimed at the line where the tooth and gum meet.
  • Choose a toothbrush with soft bristles.
  • Get all over your teeth: the front and the sides, inside and out, and the tops.
  • Use fluoridated toothpaste.
  • Use dental floss!

Remember, poor brushing and flossing allows plaque to build up on your teeth, and in between. This puts you at risk for gum disease. Regular brushing and flossing, done properly, is the best way to prevent plaque from building up.

At Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry in Alexandria, we want all our patients to enjoy excellent dental health. People from throughout the area come to our practice for family and restorative dentistry, and much more. Call us to schedule your next checkup today!
