When Something’s Gotta Give, Don’t Let It Be Your Smile

general and cosmetic dentistry Mt. Vernon

Life gets busy and sometimes it’s impossible to do everything that needs to be done. Sometimes your car has to wait for an oil change, or you  realize that you’ve had a leaky faucet for as long as you can remember. Many important things can wait, but at the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria, we plead with you not to neglect your dental health.

Here are some typical dental care shortcuts. Do you do any of them?

Rushing Through Brushing

Your teeth deserve a good two minutes of brushing. Slow and methodical beats quick and dirty. Use a process to make sure you get every tooth. Pro tip: playing one of your favorite two- or three-minute songs may help you go the distance!

Only Seeing Your Dentist When You Feel a Toothache

We hope none of our patients put off checkups and cleanings. When you feel tooth pain, it may be way too late to prevent a filling or even a root canal.

Neglecting Professional Cleanings

When softer plaque turns to calculus, you can’t brush it off with a toothbrush. Six-month cleanings help get rid of the calculus or tartar before it can hurt your enamel or irritate your gums.

Using Floss Picks Instead of Dental Floss

While it’s better to floss with a floss pick than to not floss at all, remember that floss picks only clean a part of the tooth’s surface. They simply don’t have the reach of ordinary string floss.

At the Mt. Vernon Center For Dentistry in Alexandria, we urge our patients to practice preventative dentistry to protect their smiles for life. Our services include family and restorative dentistry. Call for your next checkup today!
