Protecting Your Smile

Dentist Federal Triangle

By keeping a regular preventative maintenance schedule with your hygienist and Dr. Maria Hodas, you can avoid not only tooth decay and periodontal disease but also costly procedures and prolonged dental visits.

Brushing your teeth at least twice per day and flossing at least once per day are both essential parts of a regular home prevention routine. But did you know that there are other tools available to help you take care of your mouth? Various toothpastes, rinses, and flossing aids are available to assist you in maintaining an attractive and healthy smile for many years to come. Our team at L’Enfant Plaza Dental Arts can assist you in finding the most appropriate tools to help you enhance your daily hygiene routine. This will make your professional cleaning appointments faster and less stressful.

Your diet has an impact on your oral health as well. Acidic foods and drinks can erode your tooth enamel, but adhering to a balanced diet can help keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy.

Professional dental cleanings and exams at L’Enfant Plaza Dental Arts in Washington, D.C., a dedicated hygiene routine at home, and a healthy, balanced diet can help prevent minor dental problems from becoming major ones.
