How long has it been since your last cleaning from a dental hygienist? You don’t have to answer that. At St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, we provide thorough cleanings and checkups to ensure they have healthy teeth and great smiles.
We are devoted to giving each patient personalized care in our state-of-the-art office.
Maintaining your dental health is something that you have to work at every day. It can be a real balancing act: using the right oral care products, your personal oral care habits, and seeing us for regular checkups and cleanings.
Your dental health strategy should include:
- Daily brushing and flossing. You should brush and floss twice a day. Just before bedtime is especially important, because it cleans out the germs and plaque that build up during the course of the day.
- Proper brushing. It’s important not only to brush, but to brush properly. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush in a gentle, circular motion along the gum line. Use a fluoridated toothpaste and take your time; a minimum of two minutes is recommended.
- Seeing the dentist twice a year. We have to include this one. A professional teeth cleaning alone is worth the trip to our office, but the dentist can also identify issues before they become serious, and treat them.
If you’re due for a cleaning, please call us at St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville. We offer complete general and family dentistry. Patients from North Waldorf, East Huntingtown, and South Laplata also come to our practice for dental implants, and much more. Schedule an appointment with us today!
