It is incredibly important that people of all ages make sure that they clean your teeth on a daily basis. Aside from brushing every single day, you need to make sure that you brush between meals, and that you also floss daily and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash in order to help further kill off black and bacteria that can harm your dental health. There are plenty of other good oral hygiene habits that you can incorporate into your daily routine, but it is also important that you schedule professional teeth cleanings as well. If you are in need of an Alexandria teeth cleaning, then our dentist here at Alexander Center for Dentistry can help provide you with the comprehensive care that you need in order to have healthy teeth and healthy gums.

It is incredibly important that your teeth and your gums are clean. This is not only to help you maintain good oral hygiene in terms of having good smelling breath and clean teeth, but it is also important when it comes to limiting the amount of plaque and bacteria that has built up with in your mouth. As you eat throughout the day, plaque and bacteria develop and accumulate along the surface of your tooth enamel as well as along your gumline. These substances can have an acidic reaction with certain carbohydrates that you eat daily, such as sugars and starches. This acidic reaction will eat away at your tooth enamel and harm your gums overtime. This is what leads to the development of cavities as well as gum disease. Tooth decay and gum disease can spread quite easily, and they can pose a threat to the overall integrity of your teeth and your gums. If tooth decay or gum disease are not treated, you will experience tooth loss, tissue loss, and even bone loss as time goes on. This is why brushing flossing is so important to your dental health. But, there is only so much that you can do on your own. Here at Alexander Center for Dentistry our dentist can help by providing you with a comprehensive Alexandria teeth cleaning that is more intensive and thorough than your daily brushing and flossing affair.

With the help of precision tools and things such as tooth scrapers and water pics, our dentist can help get rid of and eliminate more significant and hard to reach plaque and bacteria that will further prevent the likelihood of tooth decay or gum disease from developing. Here at Alexander Center for Dentistry, our dentist can also examine your teeth and gums in order to make sure that you do not already exhibit any signs or symptoms of either condition, and they can even tell you whether you need to adjust your at-home oral hygiene routine in order to do a more complete job. With routine Alexandria teeth cleaning and care you can be sure that your teeth and gums will be perfectly healthy and taken care of.

If you brush and floss your teeth regularly, then you are most likely well aware of the importance of keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

At our practice, our expert and highly-trained dentists is Dr. Mohamed Attia. Dr. Attia provides exceptional dental care in a stress-free and professional setting. We offer a wide array of dental services at our practice and always offer easy appointment scheduling. We keep convenient office hours to make it easy for our patients to fit their dental care into their schedule – including getting an Alexandria teeth cleaning. When it comes to keeping your teeth and gums healthy, our in-office teeth cleaning ranks up there among the most important things to have done. When you brush and floss your teeth at home it is never possible to remove all of the plaque and bacteria from your teeth. When plaque is allowed to stay on the teeth, hardened tartar forms. This mineralized substance will eventually get between the teeth and gums and begin to form deep pockets. It is in these deep pockets that gum disease begins to take hold as the bacteria, tartar and plaque all mix to form an infection.

When you have an Alexandria teeth cleaning, tartar, plaque and bacteria is all removed from on and between your teeth. Tartar can only be removed by professional dental cleaning instruments because it totally adheres to the teeth. If tartar is not removed and deep pockets are allowed to form, gum disease will develop. If the infection progresses, it will eventually work its way down to the jawbone. Once this occurs, teeth will begin to loosen and eventually fall out. Gum disease can generally be easy to prevent with excellent at home dental care and periodic in-office teeth cleanings. If you would like to come to our office to have your teeth cleaned, and to have a periodic dental exam, contact us today.
