We want you to have a smile you feel happy in. Usually a happy smile is a healthy smile. Healthy smiles are what we’re about, here at the Healthy Smile Centre. Many dentists only focus on your teeth. However, the way your teeth look and feel is closely related to the overall health of your body. As your dentist in Alexandria, we like to take a more holistic approach to your oral health. We work together with you to make sure you have an understanding of your dental health in connection to your whole body. Hopefully this means we’ll be able to prevent things like toothache, missing teeth, or any other painful dental problems. When your teeth are looked after well, many dental problems can be avoided.
Your best smile
As your dentist in Alexandria, we want you to have the best smile possible.
Of course, not everyone is blessed with a perfectly straight and good-looking smile. This is why we offer braces and other cosmetic treatments. You can visit your dentist in Alexandria for a number of cosmetic options, including:
Invisible braces - Invisalign or TruLine
CEREC – instant crowns
Inlays and onlays
Hygiene routine reminder
Brushing and flossing are important for good oral health and fresh breath. However, you need to be sure that you are doing these things correctly – many people don’t. You can visit your dentist in Alexandria for help and advice on how to brush and floss correctly. You’d be surprised how much a couple of simple tips can help with these everyday oral health tasks.
For example, flossing isn’t just about flicking the floss between each tooth. You need to make sure you curve the floss under your gum line on each side of your tooth and scrape away any hidden plaque there with an up and down motion. It’s getting this plaque scraped away that is the most important thing about flossing because your toothbrush won’t remove all the plaque that sits beneath your gum line. Plaque that sits under your gum line can turn into tartar and lead to gum disease and decay.
