VA is known for its beautiful smiles, and our local Alexandria community is no exception. Keeping your teeth clean is an important factor in maintaining your beautiful Alexandria smile. One of the benefits of regularly visiting your local Alexandria VA family dentist is a thorough teeth cleaning and a review of your brushing habits.
Our Alexandria dental hygienist helps you keep your teeth clean by assessing the condition of your teeth, and recommending improvements to your daily teeth cleaning habits. Our Alexandria oral hygienist can also professionally clean and polish your teeth at your regular Alexandria dental check up. You should schedule a regular dental check up every six months.
I work at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry located in the state of VA. We specialize in Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in the Alexandria VA community, including the surrounding areas of Springfield and Washington DC.
Cleaning your teeth in VA is the simple task of removing plaque (a sticky deposit that gets left on teeth in which bacteria thrives) and tartar (a calcium deposit that forms on teeth and aids in tooth decay). This is done by brushing regularly with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, and flossing. Brushing and flossing at least twice each day can keep plaque and tartar from building up on your teeth and results in cleaner, healthier teeth. A regular visit to your local Alexandria dental hygienist will help you stay on top of problems that can go unseen.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visiting your local Alexandria, VA dentist at least once every 6 months for a regular dental check up and teeth cleaning. These regular visits to your VA dentist potentially prevent the undetected development of problems that can occur from neglecting to clean your teeth such as gum disease.
To keep that beautiful Alexandria VA smile in good shape, come in for a dental check up and teeth cleaning.
