At Oxon Dental Care, we care just as much about future-proofing your teeth as we do about fixing them. We will keep your mouth healthy and provide you with expert advice to prevent oral health problems before they arise, saving you money on expensive restorative treatment later down the line.
We stand by the tried and tested motto that ‘prevention is always better than cure.’ Many severe dental conditions result from poor oral health – preventative dentistry acts as early intervention, keeping your mouth healthy and reducing your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, mouth cancer and tooth loss.
Regular, six-monthly check-ups and hygiene appointments are the best way to keep your mouth in great shape. We will look for early signs of gum disease and tooth decay during your routine appointment, alongside discussing any oral health issues and screening for mouth cancer. Our hygienists will give your teeth a thorough clean to eliminate the plaque and tartar build-up, leaving your teeth fresh and sparkling!
Spread the cost
As essential as frequent trips to the dentist are, we know they aren’t affordable for everyone. We are committed to maintaining your oral health in the most effective and accessible way possible. To help spread the cost of your care and make regular examinations more manageable, we created our membership plan. The plan is tailored to your specific dental needs and available budget. Choose from:
Keeping your mouth healthy
Brushing and flossing twice a day for two minutes should be a staple part of your routine to remove plaque before it hardens into tartar and causes gum disease. Try to cut down on sugary and acidic foods as much as possible; if you consume them, wait at least half an hour before brushing to protect your enamel. When you brush, make sure to use fluoride toothpaste to defend against tooth decay.
You should register your baby with a dentist before they reach six months of age, around the time their first baby teeth begin to erupt. Like adult patients, babies and children need a check-up every six months unless instructed otherwise by their dentist.
Visiting the dentist from a young age encourages robust oral health habits in children, preventing them from developing dental anxiety later in life and encouraging them to get regular check-ups into their adult life. The result? Healthy teeth and gums for the foreseeable future.
Visiting the dentist can be frightening as a child or an adult! Our friendly team have years of experience treating young children – we will do everything we can to make your little one feel comfortable during their appointment and familiarise them with the experience. If it’s your child’s first visit, you could try settling them beforehand by practising some dentist role play, reading books about teeth and explaining what it’s all about in a positive way.
