Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

Knowing is half the battle, and to the team members at Texas Dentistry, this fact applies to your oral health as well. The more you learn, the easier it is for you to maintain positive oral health. Our goal is to make sure our patients are educated, and part of that is making sure that all of your most common questions are answered. Below, you’ll find questions and detailed answers about our dental office and oral health in general so you can be fully informed about your oral care decisions.

Why does Texas Dentistry recommend biannual visits?

Biannual appointments play a major role in not just keeping your smile looking good, but healthy. During the visit, we’ll keep an eye out for potential problems while they are still minor. This makes them far easier to treat. After a routine cleaning, we can prevent future oral problems from progressing. The last thing you should do is wait for a problem to become worse over time, or else you run the risk of allowing your issue to turn into a dental emergency. Overall, routine appointments are the best way to save money and time in the dental chair.

Can my kids receive treatment?

Texas Dentistry happily welcomes kids! Our Mesquite dental office is family-friendly and many of our team members are parents themselves! They know exactly how to make even your youngest patients feel calm, cool and collected during treatment. It doesn’t matter what age your family members are, we’re here to get their mouth healthy and keep them smiling!

Can you solve my tooth pain?

You bet! We’re equipped to take away your tooth pain and get your oral health back in order. Start by giving our dental office a call and we’ll do everything we can to see you as soon as possible. Until then, start by rinsing your mouth out with warm water and flossing your tooth. This will make sure no food debris is caught in between your teeth and that it stays clean.

What are my options for replacing teeth?

Tooth loss can affect both your oral and overall health, which is why we always recommend replacing them. There are many options to choose from, including dental bridges, partial dentures, and dental implants, which we believe is the most effective solution for restoring your root and crown, not solely the crown portion. Dental implants keep the jaw bone stimulated, which results in a stronger and healthier smile. Additionally, dental implants last between 25 years and a lifetime. If you’d like to learn more about dental implants, feel free to call our dental office to schedule a consultation!

Can you improve my yellow/dull teeth?

We have multiple treatment options for making your smile look white, youthful and beautiful again at Texas Dentistry. With the help of advanced whitening solutions from Opalescence, an effective and well-established brand, you can whiten teeth via a one-time treatment in our dental office or via take-home whitening kits for personal whitening and touch-ups over the next couple of weeks. In order to determine the best treatment for you, schedule a consultation with our dental office so we can help you get started.

Do you use the latest dental technology?

Texas Dentistry is always looking for ways to improve diagnostics and treat our patients better. We look for the most innovative technologies and techniques and incorporate them into our dental office for patients. Whether it’s a dental laser that results in little to zero pain or digital x-rays designed to reduce radiation exposure and improve treatment planning, all the technology we use is designed to create a comfortable, efficient and stress-free dental experience.

Will you take my dental insurance?

Our dental office is in-network with most PPO plans, which means we’re more than likely in-network with your plan as well. However, if you are out-of-network, our team of insurance experts will always file claims on your behalf while making sure that you’re saving as much money as possible. If you’d like to learn more about your benefits and maximize them to the fullest, give our Mesquite dental office a call!
