Preventative Care

Dental Exams and Checkups

Getting your dental exam done can seem quite intimidating. But understanding the importance of oral hygiene makes the process much less scary. At Oval Dental, we prioritize preventative care and take the necessary steps to help you maintain oral health.

An important aspect of preventative care is getting regular dental exams done. Why is that important? A dental exam allows us to assess your current dental health status, the dental care methods being used, and how efficient they are so that we can provide you with the best suggestions to improve your oral health.

Oral Hygiene

Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial for overall health and wellness. Tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath are just a few of the problems caused by poor oral hygiene. Oral hygiene is also vital if you want to avoid any risk of developing periodontal disease.

Maintaining Oral Health

Consistency is key when maintaining oral health. It is important to brush and floss regularly. At Oval Dental, we suggest using a soft-medium brush, brushing thoroughly and gently, and ensuring that you don’t miss the areas behind or between your teeth.

Flossing is another way of keeping your teeth healthy. You can do that by taking a long string of floss between your fingers and gently moving the waxed string in a back-and-forth motion between your teeth.

If you have sensitive teeth, keeping up with your oral hygiene habits can help. But if the discomfort reoccurs and is too painful, one of our highly qualified dentists at our clinic in Mesquite, Texas, can provide you with treatments to help with the sensitivity.

Child Dentistry

Developing oral hygiene habits early on is the best way to avoid dental problems later in life. Visits to the dentist should begin soon after your tot turns three.

What Happens at a Child’s First Visit to the Dentist?

At Oval Dental, for your child’s first visit to our facility, we assess the developmental status of your child’s teeth, take an overview of their teeth and gums, and teach them how to brush their teeth and take care of them correctly.

If you plan on bringing your child to our clinic in Mesquite, Texas, try to introduce your child to dental care and what it’s like, and walk them through the process so they can get an idea about what the visit entails.

It is also important to speak positively so they can be much more relaxed and comfortable during their first visit.

Preventative Care for Children

Educating your children on the importance of dental hygiene and encouraging dental hygiene practices is important. Cavity prevention is also essential and can be done by limiting foods and drinks high in sugar and providing them with healthier options.

Deep Teeth Cleaning

There are a variety of methods by which you can get your teeth deep cleaned. Deep cleaning removes any buildup around the tooth, which may be the beginning of some serious dental problems.
